24/01/20 Week 18
Our visit to the theatre this Thursday was a great success. The show was very entertaining and the main performers used instruments made from recycled materials, so it tied-in with our environmental project. The students enjoyed it very much.
Please use the link below to access the VIPERS reading prompt sheet. It provides guidance on questions that you can ask your child when reading together. This is a really useful resource and can be used when reading any text in English or Spanish.
I have also included a link to some handwriting videos which demonstrate the technique we are teaching for letter formation (please see below).
Please note that these links will expire in five days.
