Find out how Sam, a primary 4 student, managed to improve his English composition marks from 7/20 to 30/40 (Primary 5) after using the Super Writers™ 4-3-2-1 technique taught in our classes.
It is not easy for a child to “suddenly” become a proficient writer.
It is challenging to teach students creative writing because it is something very personal and every child writes differently. Thus, a personal touch is required when guiding a child on composition writing. We have also seen that the earlier (in lower primary) they learn the correct writing techniques, the better the retention of the techniques through their upper primary years.
Does your child face these problems when it comes to composition writing?
His teacher teaches him beautiful phrases but he never uses them in his composition. His composition is disorganized and full of grammatical and spelling errors.
Our students shared some of the problems they encountered:
“I hate to write compositions! I don’t want to write!”
“I don’t know what the meaning of the phrases.”
“I don’t know how to use the phrases.”
“I don’t know which part of the composition to add in the phrases.”
“I want to write better compositions, but I don’t know how to improve.”
So… I just write how I always write because that’s the easiest! (sounds familiar?)
Reading books on model compositions and writing more compositions might not necessarily translate to better composition grades. Why?
The reason is because, in composition writing, the hardest part is how a child transfers his knowledge (planning, good phrases) into reality.
So, why do our students show so much improvement in such a short period of time?
They go through a 4 step process:
And this is the secret to our students’ success…
In our small classes, our teachers sit down with each student and go through their composition to guide them on the following:
How to write better sentences (grammar, sentence variation and structure),
How exactly to use the phrases that have been taught in class,
What exactly to improve on, e.g. which part of the story to improve on, the gaps in the composition, etc.
How to improve their story flow, introduction, story climax and conclusions.
Some useful materials that are covered in our Super Writers classes:
60 commonly tested composition topics in primary schools (based on the new PSLE format)
We use this list a lot for composition writing practice to get our students to familiarise with the difficult topics and It was no surprise that most of our students’ SA1 composition questions came from this list that we gave them! Good for them!
Model compositions written by our students and teachers
The more they read, the better they get, because they realised what is expected of them! It inspires our students to write as good as, if not better than their peers!
Writing techniques: 5 senses and feelings description, excellent phrases, Interesting introductions, excellent endings and many more!
Here’s a snapshot of how our students performed for their PSLE English.
As you can see, almost all our students were getting B/C/borderline passes when they joined us…
If you child is currently under performing, we can help!

Janelle’s mum, P6 St Hilda’s
“Thank you for supporting my child in her psle journey . She was with LJEC from Nov 2016 till Sep 2017. Like magic, within 10 months, her grades jumped from B to A*. I could not imagine this great leap. I think this happened not only because she was taught techniques but also due to the words of motivation by teacher Helen and Grace. Those words really motivated her to do her home work every week!”
Anitha, Lavaanya’s mum, P6 Geylang Methodist
“Although Aldric was doing fine for his english, he was unable to score for his Composition After attending classes at LJEC, he learnt to use more interesting phrases and was taught to use good vocabulary that would make his composition more lively and less monotonous. He managed to improve his marks from an average of 25 marks to 32 marks. It gave him the confidence to express himself more in his writing too. This is a skill that not only helped in in his PSLE but prepares him for his secondary school as well.”
Aldric’s mum, P6, SJI
Mother of Tricia, P4, Xin Min Primary School (Super Writers English)
“It has been almost a year since my child joined Learning Journey for the Super Writers (Secondary) English classes . Lessons so far according to him have been nothing short of engaging. He was also equipped with the skills necessary to do well for Paper 1& 2. This has certainly helped him to improve his score from B in Sec 1 to A for Sec 2, SA1 . In addition, what I like about this centre is the commitment of the teacher in charge of my son’s class & Ms Grace is very approachable & constantly sincere in helping her students to achieve. I’m glad my child did not disappoint her!
“Teacher Grace is a very patient teacher and is able to instill interest in the subject she teaches. Dominic showed improvement in his SA2 results after a few months under Grace .. She is able to explain the comprehension answering techniques well and makes it easy to understand.”
From borderline marks for SA1 paper 2 to 34/50 for SA2 paper 2
