Dear Parent/Guardian,

 

The Cambridge Programme – New Stuff

We are happy to inform you that the Cambridge International Primary Programme has earnestly taken off and it is already yielding results in the quality of content and structure of lessons delivered.

Grades (hereafter called Years) One to Six are following a well structured Cambridge Schemes of Work in English, Mathematics and Science. Parents can access the framework that informs the schemes on the Cambridge website.

I wish to remind parents of our promise to inform and discuss with you information, progress and up-date on the Cambridge programme. The up-date was uploaded yesterday, the 21st of January, 2013 as was promised.

 

Parents should visit the school’s website (www.angelsschool.com) on the home page and click on the Cambridge International Exams up-date.  Please leave a message, comment, question or contribution.

is scheduled for this Saturday 26th January 2013.

Making the needed resources available

I refer to our discussion at the past Parent and Teacher Conference and wish to inform Primary One to Six Parents that a special week-long Book Fair to enable them obtain the needed textbooks, workbooks and readers recommended by Cambridge for their wards. This will facilitate their success in the programme. Parents will be assisted by the academic team to select books.

 

Date      :   Thursday 24th to Thursday 31st January 2013.

Venue  :   Primary School Premises – Comm.8

On sale :   English, Mathematics & Science textbooks and  workbooks published by Oxford, Cambridge, Nelson Thornes, CGP, Heinemann, Usborne, Ginn, Ladybird, Raintree etc. Also on sale will be ring files/binders and transparent bags/folders in which children will store their worksheets.

 

Time Table Adjustment for Year Six

The time table of Year Six has been adjusted to focus on French and the three Checkpoint subjects (English, Mathematics & Science). The humanities have been deferred to the third trimester. This will enable pupils to prepare adequately for the external examination.

 

Homework Schedule – New Style

A homework schedule based on the new homework policy will be available on the school’s website. The schedule informs parents about what subjects children are assigned home activities on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  Parents can have access to the new homework schedule by visiting their wards virtual school class page and click on the homework schedule menu.

Thank you.

 

Mr. Michael Mensah
