Chinese Junior Reporters
准备好，开始！”(Ready, standby, start!)
“早安您好，我是布兰雅坡小记者王国发，请问我可以访问您吗？” (Good morning, Madam. I am Junior Reporter Henri from Blangah Rise Primary School. May I interview you please?)
Our Chinese Junior Reporters were getting ready to report on the latest school event. The programme provides a platform for students to hone their Chinese Language skills by using the language in an authentic setting. It aims to equip students with basic news-reporting skills, such as conducting interviews, writing news reports, filming and editing news reports and basic photography.
Through this programme, students will be able to improve their language skills holistically as the platform renders opportunities for them to practise the four language skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing. Dusan, a Primary 5 student, commented, “I enjoy being a Junior Reporter. Through the programme, I learn the importance of being proactive and doing first things first.”
This programme further promotes 21st century skills such as communication skills, collaborative skills, technology literacy and critical thinking skills. These skills are important as we prepare our students for the 21st century workforce. In addition, they will be equipped with public speaking and social interaction skills. They become more confident and learn the importance of teamwork.
Listen to what our parents have to say about the programme!
“I am happy to see that my child has acquired the relevant language skills.”
“I hope that with more practice, I can see my child smile with more confidence.”
