|An Intensive Reading Programme|
Reading is the foundation for effective language acquisition. The Intensive Reading Programme aims to instill the love of reading in our students through the following approaches:
In order to develop 21st century learners who are world and work ready, it is important that our students are aware of the happenings around the world. Teachers make use of The Straits Times and Little Red Dot during English lessons to discuss issues related to current affairs.

Reading Intervention Programme
The literacy support at Yumin is a reading intervention programme for our underachievers focusing on developing our students’ ability to decode words, read accurately, understand the meanings of words in a text and comprehension skills.
The LSP and Extensive Reading Programme is tailored to the needs of our emergent readers where they learn to decode words, read accurately and understand what they have read. This support is extended to P3 and P4 students through the Reading Remediation Programme and School-based Dyslexia Remediation where additional help focusing on word recognition, vocabulary and comprehension is provided. In order to aid these students in their reading, we assign teacher or student buddies to read together with them before our morning assembly. The Reading Power programme focuses on developing our students’ vocabulary and comprehension skills in their final years at Yumin. The differentiated remediation also supports students in their language use and further reinforces oracy skills.
Collaboration with NLB
This year, we collaborated with Civica to run a range of activities. These activities aim to inculcate in our pupils the love for reading and the interest in reading. With the support of our parents, the activities went on smoothly and the pupils enjoyed themselves.
|The Development of Writing in Yumin|

|Talent Management Programme|
Verbal talent is the facility with language in its broadest forms – reading, writing and speaking that are recognisable by teachers. The verbally talented read well, avidly and at more advanced levels than their peers. They have advanced vocabularies that are evident in their writing and speech. They often write well, a reflection of their reading experiences. They often choose to read and write for pleasure. (MOE Gifted Education Branch, Curriculum Planning & Development Division)
