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.


C’est La Rentrée!!!


Can’t wait to see you all on Thursday, I just know we’re going to have a brilliant year together so before we start, let’s get a few things clear –


  1. We’re in this together, the whole class is there to help you learn, so ask for help and help others when they need it.


2. I LOVE mistakes! How else can you learn what is right? NEVER,NEVER be afraid of getting anything wrong in my class – the more mistakes you make, the more you learn!

3. Everyone has a second (and third, and fourth… chance!) so if you do something wrong – don’t worry about it, fix it instead! For example if you forget your homework or books then you have two jokers – free excuses where it’s ok to forget stuff. If you need another joker then check out this site or ask me what you need to do to get another one!

FIRST JOKER OR THE YEAR! – Draw a postcard and write a paragraph or two about your holidays and give it to Mrs Harris!

Finally, remember I’m always here for you and ready to help or answer any questions you or your parents have!


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!

La Rentrée!

There’s no English word for « la rentrée », so for this week’s joker – create one!

Also remember that you have a vocabulary test on lists 1 to 10 this week so get revising!

For another free joker – the « trim » are coming – describe what you do when you revise, where do you sit? How long to you work before taking a break? Do you read?underline?highlight?take notes? test yourself?

Have a good week and don’t forget the alarm clock for Monday morning!
