Welcome to the new school year 2021-2022!



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. Please note that the listening exercises from the textbook can be done only at school, they are not available for home practice. 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. 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.
