Welcome to the new school year 2021-2022!



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 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.

Today Miss Deanna taught the lessons.

We started with a class discussion, answering some difficult questions:

      

Next we did several listening review exercises from the previous level of Super Minds. I think the students found it rather easy!

We spent the rest of class learning where Cheetahs live and beginning to decorate our class poster. When it is finished I know it is going to look amazing!

Mr. Jayke will be back on Monday.

HOMEWORK:
We will begin homework next week :-)
 

13.09

Today was our first day at school for the next year! We started by introducing ourselves to each other and playing two truths one lie.

We then were introduced to the new SuperMinds 5 Student and Work books. We were given the chance to quickly look through the new units and were asked which unit was our favourite and which unit was our least favourite, and why.

We then created a mind map on the board of different rules that should be in place when in and out of the classroom. This then tied into our anti-bullying pledge, where we discussed what bullying is and what to do when we see it.

After the break we had some time to review last years supermind’s content with a listening activity and a writing activity.

We then discussed what should be on our class poster and what shouldn’t and created a design as a class.

At the end of class we were given time to work on decorating our new portfolios.

HOMEWORK:
We will begin homework next week :-)
