Welcome to the new school year 2020-2021!



On this website you can read what the pupils did in English lessons, what homework they were assigned, what they should study for the tests, and you will also learn other important information about teaching. Therefore, we ask that you check this site regularly. If you have any further questions, you can call or email us at any time.
 

* Super Minds * Dear Parents, We would like to inform you that the curriculum of the Super Minds textbook consists of two parts - the first part is the foundation (mandatory) and the second part is an extension (additional). The course was designed to suit different types of English programs and to adapt to them depending on how many hours of English per week children have. In our case, when we have four hours a week, we are able to discuss the core part (the first six pages of each lesson), but we have very little or no time for the second part (the other six pages in each lesson). For this reason, you often find missing pages in Student's Book and Workbook. Your child's teacher will always publish the homework assignment on the website so you can check if your child is going through the subject matter. Regarding the remaining pages and exercises, of course, we will encourage pupils to develop them at home if they wish. Teachers check these pages and exercises and give pupils extra stars as a reward for their efforts. The Student's Book includes an interactive DVD-ROM containing animated textbook stories, interactive games and activities, including karaoke songs for home exercise.

Here are instructions  for signing up for the  Cambridge Learning Management System . The activation code can be found inside the Workbook. These are complementary activities to the textbook, which are intended for home exercise. We don't work with them in class. 

 

SEPTEMBER

23.09

Today we began by completing a small vocabulary exercise in our portfolios. We then completed some grammar revision and played games based around the vocabulary and grammar before going to break.

We then discussed the rules during a test and then completed the listening portion of the test before taking the written test. After the test we looked at some final things in the The Science Lesson unit before doing some work on our class poster.

HOMEWORK: DUE WEDNESDAY 30th SEPTEMBER
WB, pg. 6, 7, 8

21.09

Today we began by playing wordshake, again trying to beat our high score. We then did a short exercise in our portfolios around rhyming words before marking our homework and assigning new homework.

We then looked at the unit story and mind-mapped what we thought it would be about and roleplayed as the characters!

After the break we completed a SuperMinds classware activity based around the story and then the exercises in the studentbook.

We finished by beginning on our class posters now that we are finally back in class!

16.09

Today we began by playing a game of wordshake! We keep trying to beat our high score from previous lessons (70 points).

We then did a quick review of the unit vocabulary.

We then completed some activities in the students book before looking at the unit song, introducing the time travellers.

After the break we completed some grammar revision and one more fun exercise in the student book before playing a game of skribbl.io to revise our vocabulary and grammar.

HOMEWORK: DUE MONDAY 21st SEPTEMBER
WB, pg. 4, 5, 6

14.09

Today we began class by playing a game of wordshake, where we are given a lot of different letters and asked to make as many words as we can from them in 3 minutes.

We then began Unit 0 - The Science Lesson - and looked at all the new vocabulary. We went through every single word and checked for comprehension and pronunciation and practiced them with examples.



We then had a break and played a game of skribble, where each student is given a word to draw and the other students would guess the word for points. We played and paused the game appropriately to discuss examples and definitions.

We then did some grammar revision before discussing homework due next week and saying goodbye!

HOMEWORK: DUE MONDAY 21st SEPTEMBER

09.09

Today we began by writing down some things we wanted to happen this year for a time capsule (we will paste these in our portfolios when we’re back in class).

We then ‘toured’ the textbook and went through all the different units and discussed what we think may or not happen in those units. We also had guesses on how the stories and characters would play out.

We then looked at our class mascot ‘Blue Whales’ and played a true/false fact game before designing a poster for us to make when we’re back in class.

After the break we wrote three sentences about things that we did in summer.

We then played a Kahoot quiz based around animal different animal facts as a fun little exercise.

07.09

Today was the first day of school and we began by going around the room and introducing otherselves! We then received our old portfolios from last year and our NEW SuperMinds 5 textbooks. We looked through the textbook quickly and each picked out a few things that seemed interesting or that we were looking forward too.

We then played a numbers game where we wrote down six numbers relating to something personal and swapped papers and began guessing what eachothers numbers meant.

After this we wrote a mind-map about the rules of the classroom and what is to be expected of behaviour this year.

After the break we completed a small worksheet about how we each individually learn so Mr. Jayke can understand us better and how we like to work in class.

We then discussed bullying and anti-bullying measures before signing the anti-bullying certificate.

We then got our new portfolios and discussed our mascot, the Blue Whale, before decorating our new portfolios in anyway we deem appropriate.
