Syllabus

Introduct on
About Ace!
Ace! is a six-level course for children learning English from
Primary 1 to Primary 6.
The course combines a high-level grammar and vocabulary
syllabus with fresh, modern visual appeal and all the rich,
imaginative context of a true story-based course.
The context for the Ace! course is the Ace School and the
Ace! characters, who are the school pupils. In each cycle,
we experience the daily life and learning of a different age
group of pupil characters. And just as the Ace! characters are
given a chance to shine, children learning English with Ace!
are also inspired to flourish.
The language and skills practice in Ace!, shaped in line
with the requirements of the Cambridge English: Young
Learners, Cambridge English: Key for Schools (KET) and Trinity
examinations, has been carefully chosen and crafted to
benefit all children in higher-level learning contexts, whether
they intend to sit external examinations or not. While the
syllabus is fast-paced and comprehensive, lessons are
carefully staged, the approach to practice and recycling
of language is thorough, and the methodology is clear
and supportive for teachers and children alike. The course
empowers the children to achieve, and at the same time
places importance on the fun and enjoyment of learning at
primary school.
Ace! has an inviting, highly motivating concept and a wealth
of story genres. The course places strong emphasis on
literacy, with the inclusion of a wide variety of text types
and a regular phonics review. In addition, importance is
given to the development of the whole child, through the
incorporation of Key Competence aims in the Ace! syllabus,
as well as rich cultural input, the highlighting of values, and a
cross-curricular lesson in every unit throughout the course.
To bring the Ace! world to life, the course offers a complete,
up-to-date suite of learning and teaching materials,
including a comprehensive Teachers Resource Pack, an
External Exams Practice CD-ROM, and course-specific digital
components (see Components, page 14).
Ace! 6
Learners are guided through Ace! 6 by triplets Billy, Jilly and
Milly Bean, who are all pupils at the Ace School. The triplets,
along with their friends, family and teachers provide the
background and context to each unit.
In the Starter unit, the children return to school after the
summer break and meet their new teacher, Mr Murphy. At
the end of the lesson, Mr Murphy sets the class a homework
assignment, which sets the topic for the next unit.
The opening spread of each unit shows three texts that have
been brought in by Billy, Jilly or Milly for their homework
assignment. Each text is based on authentic material that
children would find at home.
The first, and sometimes second, text presents the
vocabulary for the lesson; the second provides a gist reading
activity and the third provides the story for Lesson 2.

10

Introduction

At the end of each unit, Mr Murphy reveals the homework for


the next unit and the children are introduced to the context
for the next unit. (See Using the homework assignment as an
optional activity on page 13 for more information.)

Stories
The value of stories is widely recognized in Primary English
Language Teaching. In a fast-paced course such as Ace!,
stories are the perfect vehicle for the presentation of new
language structures.
The emphasis on stories is also invaluable in the
development of childrens literacy skills, as it furthers
familiarity and understanding of the functions of text, as well
as promoting a positive attitude to books and reading.
Stories are a way of immersing children in the target culture,
which is a significant part of learning a foreign language and
of considerable benefit to children preparing to sit external
exams. They are also a useful framework for developing Key
Competences, particularly raising awareness with regard to
inter-curricular themes and citizenship.
At this level, it is important that children have exposure to
a wide variety of texts and understand that stories are not
confined to simple narratives or cartoon strips. In Ace! 6 the
stories are provided by a reading text that Billy, Jilly or Milly
has brought in as part of his/her homework assignment.
The text type changes from lesson to lesson, with the stories
taking the form of a page from an internet blog, a theatre
programme, a playscript, a detective story and so on.
As a follow-up, animated versions of all the unit
stories on the DVD bring an extra dimension to the
storytellingexperience.

Vocabulary and grammar


Ace! is a high-level English course and therefore incorporates
a greater amount of vocabulary and a wider range of
grammatical structures than would be expected in a
mainstream English language course. The language syllabus
for Ace! 1 to Ace! 6 has been specifically designed in line
with the syllabi of the Trinity examinations, as well as the
Cambridge English: Young Learners and the Cambridge English:
Key (KET for schools) examinations. The path towards the
goal of entering these external examinations has therefore
been taken into consideration in the design and coverage
of the Ace! 6 syllabus. At the same time, equal emphasis
has been placed on the importance of teaching a practical,
well-balanced, high-frequency language syllabus, which is
appropriate for all children learning English at this level.
In Ace! 6, twelve new core items of vocabulary are presented
in Lesson 1 of each unit, with a further twelve taught in
Lesson 5. All the new core vocabulary is grouped in semantic
sets that relate to the unit topic. The vocabulary is presented
through listening activities, and then practised through
motivating communicative games and activities. Wordcards
are provided in the Teachers Resource Pack for practice and
reinforcement, and the children are encouraged to keep
a record of this new language (along with any more new

vocabulary) in their own Bilingual dictionaries in the back of


their Activity Books throughout the course of the year.
Each unit of Ace! 6 also presents and practises two new
core structures. The children are exposed passively to the
first structure through the story in Lesson 2, with Lesson 3
providing a clear focus on how the grammar works. There is
thorough listening, speaking, reading and writing practice of
the structure in the Class Book and Activity Book.
A second grammatical structure is presented through the
cross-curricular reading text in Lesson 6. This is practised
through engaging reading, writing and communicative
pairwork activities in the Class Book, and reading, writing
and listening activities in the Activity Book. The Grammar
and everyday language posters for each unit, provided in
the Teachers Resource Pack, can also be used to introduce
and explain the grammatical structures in Lessons 3 and
6, as well as providing a visual opportunity to review the
grammar, for example, at the end of a unit. Specific notes for
using the posters are provided in the unit notes.
At this level, there is also a focus on functional language.
Lesson 7 centres around a dialogue based on an everyday
situation, such as buying a train ticket or asking for and
giving directions. Useful phrases are highlighted so that they
are easy to pick out. These are practised through acting out
the roleplay and completing a communicative activity with
the fluency cards from the Activity Book. The Grammar and
everyday language posters for each unit also have a section
on functional language, providing useful language for the
fluency card activities in Lesson 7.

Skills
Ace! 6 has an integrated approach to language and skills
development. The Class Book and Activity Book work
closely together to encourage development of the four
skills. Through a variety of enjoyable tasks with a very
systematic approach, the children progress from listening
practice to speaking practice, and from reading practice to
writingpractice.
Over the Ace! series as a whole, care has also been taken to
ensure that children preparing for Trinity and Cambridge
English examinations develop the required level of skills
competency, as well as familiarity with examination
tasktypes.
Listening: Ace! recognizes the particular importance of
listening in the early years of language learning. All new
language is presented with clear models on the Audio CD.
Listening to songs, stories, and cross-curricular and cultural
texts also helps the children assimilate the language and
exposes them to native speaker pronunciation. In addition,
listening activities in the Activity Book help to prepare pupils
for practical, everyday tasks in English.
Speaking: There is a strong speaking focus in Ace! 6,
with activities designed to help the children develop
fluency and accuracy. This includes personalized speaking
activities, practice of the everyday dialogue in Lesson 7 and
communicative games using the fluency cards from the
Activity Book.
The speaking practice in Ace! 6 culminates in the delivery of
a class presentation at the end of every unit. The children
are guided in this through a series of clear and supportive
preparation activities in the Activity Book.

Further opportunities for speaking in class are provided


through contexts the children can easily relate to, as well
as suggestions for teacher-led discussions provided in
the teaching notes. The Speak up poster, available in the
Teachers Resource Pack, can also be used to support
any kind of communicative activity, be it part of the core
lesson, a warmer or lead-in activity or an optional activity.
It can also be used for both open pairwork, where a pair of
children work together while the rest of the class observes,
and closed pairwork, where the children work in pairs
without being observed by others. Structures and example
sentences are provided for a variety of functions, such as
talking on the phone and using numbers.
Details of optional communication games are also given in
the Ideas bank (see page 201).
Reading and writing: Children learning English at a higher
level need to be able to make fast progress in reading
and writing. This is particularly true for those studying
in bilingual projects or with the intention of sitting
externalexaminations.
Ace! 6 takes a very systematic approach to reading and
writing. It familiarizes children with the structures and
conventions of different types of text before any reading or
writing takes place.
Lesson 1 provides an overview of different text types; it
begins with a text-type recognition activity and leads on to
a gist reading activity. In Lesson 2, the children read in more
detail to find specific information in a story.
In Lesson 8, the children read each of the three cultural texts
for gist before they read again to extract specific information
to answer questions.
Lesson 9 in the Class Book and Activity Book prepares the
children for a writing activity. It presents and provides
analysis of a particular type of text, for example a review,
essay or diary entry.
Following a series of preparation activities in the Activity
Book, the children then produce their own texts. The Class
Book and the Activity Book provide models that the children
can use to support their writing.

External examinations for young learners


At this higher level of English-language learning, many
young learners in Primary 1 to Primary 6 are entered for
external examinations such as the Trinity examinations, the
Cambridge English: Young Learners examinations (Starters,
Movers and Flyers) and the Cambridge English: Key for Schools
examination (KET). The syllabus of Ace! 16 reflects the
language and skills requirements of these examinations.
Trinity examinations: The Ace! series aims to prepare the
children to enter the Trinity Grade 2 examination by the end
of Ace! 2, the Trinity Grade 4 examination by the end of Ace! 4
and the Trinity Grade 6 examination by the end of Ace! 6.
Cambridge English: Young Learners examinations: The Ace!
series aims to prepare the children to sit Starters by the end
of Ace! 3, Movers by the end of Ace! 5 and Flyers by the end of
Ace! 6.
Cambridge English: Key for Schools examination (KET): The
Ace! series aims to prepare the children to sit the Cambridge
English: Key for Schools examination (KET) by the end of
Ace!6.

offer practice and reinforcement of the vocabulary from


the lesson. They cover a wide variety of musical genre,
specifically designed to encompass the diverse range of
musical styles the children enjoy in the realworld.

Culture

The Ace! course transfers useful, practical English language to


a range of different areas of the curriculum, including drama,
geography, history, citizenship, sport and design. The areas
chosen reflect and build on the kind of subject matter that
the pupils are working with in other classes.
In Ace! 6, Lesson 6 is contextualized as a school trip where
the Ace School pupils visit Shakespeares Globe Theatre,
museums, film locations, a recycling centre and other
interesting places that will spark curiosity in different areas of
the curriculum.
The cross-curricular content of the lesson is consolidated
and practised through a reading activity and a personalized
communication game in the Class Book, as well as follow-up
activities in the Activity Book.

Ace! values intercultural education as an essential part of


language learning. It is important for children to understand
and reflect on the differences and similarities between
their own and other cultures in order to develop Key
Competences, in particular competence in social skills and
citizenship. The culture lessons throughout the Ace! series
help them to develop an awareness of the people around
them, as well as a stronger understanding of the different
cultures around the world.
There are regular culture lessons in every unit throughout
the Ace! course. In Ace! 6, the children learn about aspects
of the lives of children in different countries. The cultural
information is presented as a web page in which different
children respond to questions about their lives that Billy, Jilly
and Milly have posted. This sets a context that the children
will easily be able to relate to and shows how children from
all over the world are united as part of a global village.
The follow-up activities in the Ace! 6 Activity Book give
the children the opportunity to consolidate what they
have learnt. They are also encouraged to reflect on the
target culture and draw conclusions about similarities and
differences by producing their own text, personalized with
ideas and experiences from their own culture.
In addition to the cultural input in Lesson 8, further
intercultural learning is provided through the three Festival
sections located at the end of the Ace! 6 Class and Activity
Books. These are intended to be used at the appropriate
times of the year: Thanksgiving (November), Christmas
(December) and World Poetry Day (March).

Learning about values is a key feature of the Ace! series as a


whole. In Ace! 6, Lesson 8 ends with a Vital values focus. In
this level, the pupils will encounter the following themes:
being a considerate member of an audience at a
performance
being safe and following safety instructions
finding time to read every day
respecting your local area and learning about its history
trying to protect and help your local environment
joining in and trying new activities
learning about traditional crafts and skills
being sensible and safe when you go online
not believing everything you see on the internet or on TV.

Pronunciation and phonics

Revision

Ace! 6, like Ace! 5, has a strong pronunciation focus, which


is found at the end of Lesson 7. These sections deal with
intonation, stress in words, sentences and questions and
pronunciation of numbers and web addresses.
The children listen to a recording of the target words,
phrases and sentences and repeat them with the class. The
pronunciation point is reinforced through the dialogue from
the lesson; the children listen out for the words and phrases
in the dialogue before acting it out in pairs or groups.
Phonemes in English can be represented by a variety of
spelling patterns, which can be a great cause of confusion
to learners of English. The phonics review in Lesson 9 of
the Activity Book helps the children to recognize different
spelling patterns for particular sounds as well as focusing on
tricky aspects of English spelling and pronunciation, such as
silent letters and homophones.

In Ace! 6, the core vocabulary and grammar of the unit


is reviewed in each Lesson 10 through the Ace School
newsletter. Each edition of the newsletter contains a range
of fun activities to review vocabulary and grammar, such as
word puzzles, magazine-style reports, surveys and picturebasedactivities.
Following each sequence of three units, there is also a more
extensive revision section, each based around a story in the
Class Book featuring the Ace School characters. Two pages
of follow-up exercises per story also appear in the Activity
Book. These Revision story lessons review the core and
secondary vocabulary and grammar from each term. Details
can be found in the Revision stories section of this Teachers
Book (see page 186).

Songs
Songs are an invaluable way of practising new language,
as they naturally include repetition and greatly aid memory
through their use of rhythm.
Each unit of Ace! 6 contains a song, which is found in Lesson
5 and on the DVD. The song videos use real-life footage,
which is particularly relevant for this age group. The songs

Values

Optional lessons
Each unit includes two optional lessons, details of which can
be found in the Optional lessons using the DVD section of this
Teachers Book (see page 27) and in the lesson notes that
follow. The first optional lesson (Lesson 3a) comes after Lesson
3 and reviews the main vocabulary from the unit and provides
reinforcement of the main grammar point presented in the
previous lesson. This is also the suggested point for showing
the animated version of the story on the DVD. The second

optional lesson (Lesson 6a) follows Lesson 6. It gives ideas


for extending cross-curricular content and language taught
in the cross-curricular lesson, and for a project based on the
cross-curricular topic. This is also the suggested point for
showing the real-world film clips from the DVD.

Using the homework assignment as an


optionalactivity
Teachers may wish to set their own class the homework that
Mr Murphy gives Class 6A at the end of the unit. This can
then be used as an optional lead-in activity for the following
unit. The children will find this interesting and rewarding, but
it will demand some degree of classroom time.
If you wish to set the homework assignments to your class,
you will need to be sure that you have enough time in
your schedule for the children to present what they have
brought in. Some teachers may wish to set the homework
assignment for some, but not all units; others may wish
to divide up the class so that different children do the
assignment for different units.
You may choose to ask the children to present their
homework to the whole class or within small groups.
The second option may suit teachers with less time and
those who have less confident pupils. Go around the
class, listening and helping as the children present their
homework. Also allow time at the end to discuss the activity
with the class, for example by asking one child from each
group to tell the class what the children have brought in

Testing and evaluation


Childrens progress can be evaluated through formal testing,
ongoing assessment and self-assessment. In terms of formal
testing, there are nine unit tests, three term tests and one
end-of-year test on the Teachers Resource CD-ROM, which
together cover the target language from the course. All
these tests are available as printable or editable documents,
so you can choose to adapt the material to suit your class.
For ongoing and self-assessment, each unit ends with a
self-evaluation task in Lesson 11, encouraging the pupils to
reflect on the activities they have done in the unit they have
just finished. The focus is on becoming aware of the progress
they are making and of areas that need more attention. As
well as this, there are evaluation grids and portfolio material
on the Teachers Resource CD-ROM, which allow you to
continuously assess your pupils progress and provide them
and their parents with feedback.
You will also find practice papers for the Trinity and
Cambridge English: Young Learners, Cambridge English: Key for
Schools (KET), and Cambridge English: Preliminary for Schools
(PET) examinations on the External Exams Practice CD-ROM.

Key Competences
The inclusion of the Key Competences in the curriculum
is designed to integrate the formal learning specific to
each subject area with less formal learning. This helps the
children to see the relationship between different subjects
and use skills learnt in one area in different contexts. The Key
Competences encourage the activation of resources that the
learner already has. Foreign-language learning contributes
directly to the development of competence in linguistic
communication as it increases, enriches and complements
a pupils communicative capacity. When language learning
is based on the development of the four communicative
skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking), it helps
to develop this Key Competence in the same way as the
study of a native language. A more detailed explanation
of how learning a foreign language can develop the other
Key Competences can be found on the Teachers Resource
CD-ROM, along with ideas and worksheets for further
exploitation of each Key Competence.
The materials in Ace! 6 offer many opportunities for the
development of the Key Competences. These are clearly
highlighted and explained throughout the teachers notes.

Parental involvement
Learning involves a cooperative relationship between
home and school, and it is important to establish clear
communication with parents to encourage home support.
The following are suggestions about possible ways of
doingthis.
Keep parents informed about what their children are
learning and their progress. School blogs can be an
effective way to keep parents up to date, as well as
being highly motivating for children. Please make sure,
however, that the children in your classes are protected
at all times when they are online. Ensure that the school
blog has a password, so that it is only available for the
people for whom it is intended. In addition, teach children
about internet security. Screen what they plan to post
before they post it and make sure that they dont reveal
too much personal information, especially telephone
numbers, addresses or personal emails.
Set the children homework to tell their parents the unit
topic, sing them a song in English or tell them about life
in the English-speaking countries, for example. Encourage
parents to play the Songs CD, at home or in the car, to
motivate their children.
Inform parents of the values their children are learning,
and ask them to encourage their children to employ them
at home too.

Multimedia
Ace! has a fresh, innovative and fully integrated approach to
multimedia in the classroom, allowing teachers to create a
tailored digital solution to best suit them and their school
facilities. The Ace! digital tools include the iPack, Teachers
Resource CD-ROM, DVD and Oxford Online Learning
Zone website. Details of these features are provided in the
Optional lessons using the DVD and Ace! Digital sections of this
Teachers Book (see pages 27 and 29).
