Vážení rodiče,

pokud si má Vaše dítě vést v programu úspěšně, je důležité, abyste věděli, co se na hodinách dělá, a mohli jej tak ve studiu podpořit. Na této webové stránce najdete informace o práci v jednotlivých hodinách, zadání domácích úkolů a další důležité informace týkající se výuky. Je nezbytné, aby se žáci snažili vypracovávat domácí úkoly a v případě absence si vždy doplnili zameškanou látku. Snadněji se tak po návratu do školy zapojí do výuky. V případě dotazů nás můžete kdykoli kontaktovat.

Při výuce používáme nejnovější, čtvrté, vydání učebnice  Fun For FlyersJeho součástí je nová digitální platforma, Cambridge One, která obsahuje Digital Pack pro domácí studium a opakování. Všechna poslechová cvičení z učebnice jsou nyní na této nové platformě dostupná. Návod k jejímu užívání najdete na vnitřní straně obalu učebnice. V případě dotazů či problémů týkajících se používání této platformy, klikněte na stránce  https://www.cambridgeone.org/home  dole vpravo na ikonku "?HELP", kde najdete krátká videa, jak postupovat.
