June in Primary ELS 

The children started Term 3 with the same positive attitude they showed in Term 2. They have started exciting new topics for Connected Learning and this means that there is new vocabulary, concepts and writing styles to learn. 

This month, some students will start one last learning unit each to complete the academic year.

Please take a look at the links below to learn more about these final units of learning. In addition to new work in their literacy classes, we will continue to work hard on their reading accuracy, fluency and comprehension skills in our daily reading lessons.
