Week of 10th September

Everyone got great results in the vocabulary tests last week so keep up the good work! Your ICD grammar lessons are now on this site so take a look and start doing practice exercises for your tests next week.

THIS WEEK’S JOKER = Write FIVE phrases, each using a word from vocabulary list 2.

Don’t forget it’s the school photos this Tuesday, and if you want an extra « appui » English class for Friday afternoon ask me before Wednesday lunch.



Back to School!

Are you ready? – I am! I hope you had a great summer, we have loads of exciting things prepared for this new school year.

If you’re impatient to start practising your English already then you can start by telling me what you did in the holidays in the comment box below.

You can also follow me on instagram and tell me your #3bestbits of your holidays.

Revising during the holidays!

You don’t want to work but your parents want you to? Here are some suggestions:

  1. Netflix in English!

Watch your favourite film/series in V.O. with subtitles.

2. Gaming in English!

Not only are your favourite video games available in English but you can improve your game with a « how to… » clip on youtube.

3. Songs!

All your favourite songs are in English so check out the words on youtube. Here are the words for Drake-One Dance

4. Read a book!

Radical I know, but try the last Harry Potter in English, it’s quite easy as it’s a play script, there’s less detail and so it’s quicker to read than the other books.

5. Quizlet

Maybe not the most exciting thing to do in the holidays, but it’s great for learning vocabulary.



Don’t panic!

Start revising now if you haven’t done so already.

Revise the vocabulary regularly and use quizlet.

Reread the ICD BUT MORE IMPORTANT – do practice exercises in the textbook, at the end of the unit and the end of the book.

For the oral exam prepare and practise the questions (the subjects are on this blog).

Check the list at the end of each unit in the workbook.

Ask for appuis

ASK YOUR TEACHER! – now is the time to ask all your teachers about anything you are not sure about.





If you do all of this, you will be GREAT!

Ready to go back?

Hi everyone, I hope you had a fantastic holiday, I did! For this week’s free joker you need to write four things you think I did in the holidays and four things you think I saw. Here’s a clue:


This week we’ll be doing lots of exciting things, including some strategies to help you learn your vocabulary, and we have our open day on Saturday!

There’s also an extra joker if you tell me what you did in the holidays in the comments box below 🙂

See you soon!

Back to School!

Are you ready?!

I hope you had a great summer, mine was fantastic and I’ll tell you all about it when we meet again.

Here is one of the places I visited, do you know where it is?


Here are the fireworks I saw, can you guess when?


Why don’t you bring some photos to show me next week?

I hope you are starting to get organised for school, I’ve already bought my new pens and pencil cases, my new mark book is waiting for your first test results!

I’m also looking at new ways to help you learn, and I found this – learning strategy list which I think you will find very useful, so why not take a look?

Whatever you are doing this week, I hope you enjoy the last days of the holidays and I’m looking forward to seeing you all very soon 🙂
