Pupil home learning- lockdown 2

Happy new year, everybody! We hope you are all keeping well.

On Monday the 11th of January 2021 we will begin our home learning on google classroom. You should all now have access to your year group’s google classroom. If there any problems, please contact your French or Spanish teacher.

Every week French S1-3 classes will be given their work on google classroom for the week to complete. You decide when you want to do it, maybe when you usually have got French? The following Monday we will post an answer sheet and a new lesson. Always mark your previous week’s work before starting the next lesson.

Senior French  and Spanish pupils will also be given your work on a Monday and you should submit your  work by the due date given. Usually the following Monday.

S1-S3 Spanish pupils will get their work on Tuesdays and you will have a week to complete your work too.  You decide when you want to complete your work, maybe when you usually have Spanish? Please complete the work before the due date. We will post an answer sheet for you to mark your work. Then start the new lesson after you have marked it.

If you have got any questions, please contact your French or Spanish teacher. We hope to see you very soon back in class!

Take care and stay safe!
