Description of Programmes:
Blended Lessons in Tamil
In Blangah Rise Primary School, blended lessons incorporating self-directed and collaborative learning are carried out during Tamil lessons. Our students use the iPad, Student Learning Space (SLS) and other apps such as Kahoot and Nearpod for online activities.
Tamil Language Fortnight
“ எனக்குக் கைப்பாவைப் பயிலரங்கு மிகவும் பிடித்திருந்தது. பல பேர் முன் தைரியமாகப் பேச அது எனக்குக் கற்றுக்கொடுத்தது!”
“I liked the Puppetry Workshop. It taught me to speak confidently in front of an audience!” – Shazana Begum, Primary 4
The Tamil Language Fortnight is a platform to promote the use of the Tamil language and to instil passion in the language and culture.
