Welcome to the new school year 2020-2021!

On this website you can read what pupils did in English lessons, what homework they were assigned, what they should study for the tests, as well as other important teaching information. 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 them to how many hours of English per week children have. In our case, when we have four hours and 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 exercise 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 the 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. 




Today we started class writing in our portfolio, we practiced the past tense. Next, we wrote about a hypothetical best day ever. We then shared with our partners and took turns writing some of the most common mistakes on the board and correcting them as a class. We then played a guessing game for the character's names in our text. We then listened to a song. After, we read questions related to the song and listened and read the lyrics at the same time. We then shared the answers we got. 

After the break, we played a game that practiced saying four digit numbers aloud. Next, we started to work on rhyming. We read a dialogue and pointed our all the rhyming words and discussed their spelling. Next, we did the same thing for the song lyrics we looked at. We then did a matching activity. 

 Home work is due 25.9.2020

Today we started by working in our portfolio. We wrote about our favorite class and the reasons we like it. Next, we did a listening activity to learn our new science class specific vocabulary. We then took turns finding the new words in a picture. Next, we read reading-comprehension questions aloud. We listened to the story two times and answered the questions. Then we played Pictionary with our new vocabulary words.

We quickly revised words for emotion and then played a hot potato game with a balled-up piece of paper.  We then did an activity where the kids had to read clues and deduce the answer to answer the puzzle. We then read some sentences loud together for pronunciation practice. We did past simple tense practice and then completed an activity with it, in the workbook. We practiced spelling our new vocab words with hangman-like game.

Homework will be assigned Friday.


Today we started class by searching for hidden flash cards with story scenes on them. Once each student found their card, they wrote 2-3 sentences about it in their portfolio. Next, we challenged ourselves with a number game, students had to guess at numbers and then read them correctly aloud as a class.  

We then played a few rounds of charades where students had to silently perform or act out something and the rest of the class had guess in English what the actor was trying to convey. We then had several students come to the front and act as teacher to review classroom rules.

We then reviewed the days of the week and months of the year in order by playing a volley game with a beach ball. Next, the students looked at an assortment of useless inventions and then with a partner and had to make their own useless or silly item. The students then had to present them to the class answering: What does the invention do? What does it look like? What is it called? Where will you sell it? 

Next, we played an adjective game with the class split in two. A student will show a food flash card they cannot see and their classmates will use describing words to get them to guess what they are holding up.

There was no homework assigned. 


Today we had our first day of LEAP! The students introduced themselves to each other and their teacher. We started with an ice breaker that expressed our most and least favorite foods.

Next, we reviewed the rules of LEAP. We talked about what it means to be respectful to the program, the teacher, and most importantly to each other. We discussed bullying and how it is to be avoided along with signing a pact agreeing to a bullying free zone.

We talked about classroom expectations including; sitting in our places nicely, speaking only in English, asking to move, asking to use the bathroom, what to bring to class and what not to bring to class.

The students received their portfolios back from last year and were given new ones to decorate for this year. We then reviewed who owes books from the previous year. We decorated and discussed the class poster for the Grizzly Bears along with learning some facts about grizzly bears.

We discussed why each child individually would like to improve their English. We played a fast paced word association game, a rock paper scissors tournament, and a guessing game with numbers.

There was no homework assigned.
