I’m so looking forward to seeing you all again after the holidays, I doubt anyone needs a joker yet but if you want to flex your English brain a little you can do the following:

Write me a letter – tell me about your holidays and your resolutions for 2020, here’s mine:

Dear Students,

I spent the holidays with my family, we had visitors from England. We went to the Christmas market in Bastions, and we went skiing on Boxing day (26th December). For New Year’s eve friends came to our house for a delicious dinner – no, I didn’t cook! I spent the holidays working (planning lessons and writing chapters for a future textbook)  and reading, here I am:

I went to the cinema three times, I saw Star Wars, Jumanji II and Little Women.

My Resolutions are to go swimming every week, run twice a week to train for a race in May, and finish writing a book for teachers that I’m working on.

Have a brilliant 2020,

Best Wishes from Mrs Harris!

Need a joker?

The end of term is arriving and many of you need a joker to make up for forgotten books or homework!

The objective of homework, and these jokers is for you to think in English for a little moment outside class, this greatly improves your English level IN class.

As you haven’t had time to do the English I asked you to do outside class, tell me instead when you did « meet » English this week;

Write a list of moments you spoke/heard/read or wrote English outside class this week and give it to Mrs Harris 🙂
