February in Primary ELS

As we approach a break in the middle of Term 2, we would like to thank the students for their hard work and dedication. The ELS team would also like to thank the parents for their ongoing support; it is essential to our programme.

When we return in early March, the students will be studying exciting new Connected Learning topics. Please take the time to watch the videos below to start the learning process.

Lastly, please ensure that your child is up to date with both their reading homework (provided through their USB memory stick) and any additional work that has been sent home (such as vocabulary worksheets which help the children understand their classroom work).

The links below relate to the new Connected Learning topics.
