January in Primary ELS

Another new year has started and it's been a very busy start to the year for our amazing students! All of the children are working really hard and responding well to the many activities we use to improve their use and understanding of English. 

We assist the ELS students through a combination of in-class support for Literacy Class and withdrawal for intensive reading lessons. The students in Key Stage 2 also have some homework activities to do. This consists of:
1. Electronic books with audio given to the students on their USB memory sticks. Please support us by trying to provide access to a computer and by signing the ELS Reading Record in the back of the GIS Communication Diary.
2. Vocabulary worksheets so the children have a better understanding of the connected learning topic they are studying. 

Please assist us by encouraging your child and reminding them to do their homework tasks.

In our February Primary ELS Blog, we'll be introducing some exciting new units that will start after the break in the middle of Term 2.

Finally, please have a look at our amazing students learning this month!

We would like thank the ELS students for their wonderful attitude, as well as thank their parents for their ongoing support. It is very much appreciated.
