The main objective of the research lesson was to help the Primary 6 low readiness pupils to describe pictures using sentences from Sentence Master programme. This was facilitated through the use of Photo Story. The lesson encouraged self-directed learning and enabled pupils to focus on small portions of the picture. The pupils were able to use the sentences from Sentence Master to describe the picture in an organised manner. It also enabled the teacher to listen and track individual pupil’s progress.
