Dear parents,

I.T. Theory Exam

As I previously mentioned there was a clash between the exam day for the I.T. theory
exam and the day off scheduled for grade one this Wednesday. I have spoken to the I.T.
teacher Mr. Shabbir and the I.T. theory exam will now be held on Saturday 5th June

Here is a revised summary of all the upcoming exam dates for Grade 1C:

Health & Fitness End of Chapters 10 & 11 (Combined) Test – You Have
Feelings & Your Family - Tuesday 8th June 2010

As I mentioned before, we have one last chapter test to complete before the
final exams. Part of the material is also part of the final exam and so it serves
as revision for that too.

Please check that your child understands orally the meaning of the words that
you find highlighted in yellow in the colour textbook and that he can orally
answer the questions that you find in the “review” box at the end of each
lesson. You may also refer to the chapter reviews found on pages 202-3 & 218-
9. In addition you can find many keywords from each chapter defined in short
sentences in the glossary in pages 253-260 which may also help.

English Unit 5 Reader

Regarding Unit 5 of the English syllabus, I realised at the beginning of the year
when I was preparing the schemes of work for the year that we wouldn’t get to
start Unit 5 in English before we end. We lost time after the Ministry of
Education delayed the opening of all the schools in response to the swine flu
and it wasn’t practical to catch it back up. However, in planning the year I still
ensured that we covered the key components and skills required for the grade
and so please don’t feel that we’ve missed out.

I’ll still like to send home the Unit 5 reader which you may use as leisure
reading in the summer holidays. There are some nice stories in there, for
example I like Tippy-Toe Chick Go and Dot & Jabber. This is just something
extra for the children, it’s not part of the final exams and there’s no need to
bring it into class.
