The bread and butter of the ELS department, that is the Year 10 and Year 11 ESL students, tried their hand at butter scultping. Perhaps the results can be used to butter up their teachers! Anyway, they now all have an excuse when they perform badly in PE..."Sorry Ms Longstaffe. I have butter fingers!"

To get students into the festive spirit, and to add a little motivation to practice listening exams, Mr Berry awarded prizes of chocolates to students who did well in the Christmas listening exam. The picture below shows the Year 11 ESL class enjoying the fruits of their labour!
Both KET and PET students had great fun using Monopoly to learn through doing. Not only did they learn some useful English words, they also showed some great entrepreneurial skills. Maybe there are a few budding Donald Trumps at GIS.

Both KET and PET students did fantastically well in the term 1 exams. All six KET students passed and will study PET next term. In addition, four PET students passed and will join set 2 English next term. Well done to everyone.

It's so important to vary students' learning stimuli. The pictures below show Mr Berry doing this with the Year 10 ESL class. They are learning vocabulary through game playing in the more relaxed environment of the open-air second floor of the canteen complex.
