English:

In class, we have been following an approach in English called 'The Write Stuff' by Jane Considine. We apply a method called 'sentence stacking' where you learn grammatical and technical concepts within the context of sentences. 

During lockdown in February till June, Mrs Considine did daily English lessons called 'Super Sentence Stacking'. These videos follow a similar structure to what we are doing in class currently, so you can continue with 'The Write Stuff' approach at home as well.

In the videos Jane does refer to sending work to her through social media, however, these videos are not live, so you wouldn't need to do that anymore.

For your English lesson, you will need your homework book and a pencil or pen.

Here is a list of her writing lessons based on short film clips. Click on the title to be directed to the English lesson. Please complete one each day.
