English Writing and Comprehension

English Writing and Comprehension

For P1 to P6 students

What if we tell you that beyond having a high-level of proficiency in English, Primary school students will need to write, read and comprehend a wide range of texts to excel in the examinations?

In Singapore, English is the primary language of instruction and is one of the main lingua franca of the Internet, world trade, and the increasingly technologically-driven world. In line with the new MOE English Language Syllabus 2020, NASCANS recognises how literacy has been influenced by social, cultural and technological changes and incorporates multiliteracies in its English language programmes.

To excel in the English language, Primary school students must equip themselves with essential strategies and techniques in the years leading up to the PSLE examination. At NASCANS, our English enrichment is a structured, systematic and student-centric programme that is aligned to the syllabus set by Singapore’s Ministry of Education.


Developed by in-house English experts, the programme infuses grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing to build a robust foundation for Primary 1 to Primary 6 students, and help them tackle the main examination components in the English language examinations.

Our English Programme covers the two main components of the English paper (75%):

  • Paper 1 (Writing)
  • Paper 2 (Comprehension and Language Use)
