P6 English Composition list of preliminary themes 2020

Firstly, congratulations to my students for their excellent Preliminary English scores. Some targets have been surpassed while others have been narrowly missed. And of course, there are also some disappointments. For those who are disappointed, don’t feel disheartened. There is still a month to go and a lot can be achieved in a month!

A positive outlook is essential in the last month before the PSLE. Like every year, this is the most important time to encourage the students and remind them to persevere on.

Whether they did well or missed their targets, September is an important month for revision. As the P6s missed their SA1 this year, their Prelims is their only indication on the areas that they need to improve on. It is important to listen to the teachers’ feedback and correct themselves. Prepare daily but also sleep early and find ways to de-stress.

Below is the list of my students’ Preliminary topics, kindly compiled by the students. Students can prepare at home or with their tutors their planning for the topics. This is what we will be doing again over the next few weeks at Thinking Factory.

It is a good way for students to feel confident should a similar theme come out for PSLE. We worked on the 2017 & 2018 Prelim topics in class before their prelims and this helped them to feel (and be) more prepared before their Prelim English.
