Reading and writing teaching plays a significant role in the primary English classroom. By virtue of the teaching ability structure framework in the “Development of Excellent Teachers’ Teaching Ability” as the coding basis and content analysis as method, this paper extracts judges’ comments in 16 reading and writing classes of the 6th-10th National Primary School English Classroom Teaching Observation Training as the research object and transcribes the discourse to establish a research corpus in a bid to locate the main problems existing in primary school English reading and writing teaching and figure out the countermeasures. The data analysis of the corpus indicates that some problems exist in the teaching design of primary school English reading and writing teaching, such as opaque analysis of teaching materials, imbalance of teaching content and poor design of teaching activities in the teaching implementation. Improving countermeasures include: make full use of textbooks to carry out discourse study, build language and thinking scaffolding, design activities under the concept of deep learning and so on.
