Summer time!

Empty school, corridors in silence and lonely lockers. You just got your reports a week ago.... some of you are still waiting for the IGCSE, AS or A level results but it is time to relax now. Do not forget to revise and read during the summer to keep ourselves busy and active.

Summer letter 2017

Estimados padres y alumnos de “Geography” en year 7A, 7B, 8A, 8B, 9A, 9B, 9C, 11 y “History” year 7A, 7B y 8A :

Como cada año cuando llegan estas fechas, me gusta comunicarme con vosotros para agradecer vuestro apoyo y trabajo desde casa. Este año ha sido otro curso largo y duro en muchos aspectos, y no sólo en lo académico. Agradezco vuestro reconocimiento y apoyo durante todos estos meses.

Espero disfrutéis de un buen verano y merecido descanso. Como cada año, recomiendo se siga en contacto con actividades relacionadas con la lectura y repaso de conceptos aprendidos durante el año. Algunos estudiantes de “year 7, 8 y 9” han recibido en estos dias un “summer-pack”. En los comentarios de las notas he puesto quien debe hacer el trabajo de verano. Son actividades de repaso para aquellos que han suspendido o han aprobado pero creo que necesitan reforzar la/s asignatura/s de cara al curso que viene. No olvidéis traerlo hecho a la vuelta de vacaciones y entregarlo en la primera semana como “year 8, 9 ó 10”.
Aquí tenéis un enlace con las instrucciones por si han perdido la documentación que he entregado a los alumnos.

Para mis estudiantes de year 11, espero tengáis buenos resultados en los IGCSE y disfrutéis de un gran verano.

También espero que este verano descansemos y el sol nos recargue a todos de energía para así empezar el nuevo curso con fuerza y energía renovada.

Un abrazo y gracias una vez más.

Félix Legaz

Dear Parents and Students of "Geography" in year 7A, 7B, 8A, 8B, 9A, 9B, 9C, 11 and "History" year 7A, 7B & 8A,

This year and like every year before, I want to communicate with you to thank you for the support and help provided from home. It has been another long hard year in many ways, not just academically. As usual, I really appreciate your support and understanding during all these months.

I hope you enjoy a great summer and deserved rest. I recommend you follow up with reading-related activities and review of concepts learned during the year. Some students in "year 7, 8 and 9" have received a "summer-pack" already, There is a reminder on the reports about the students that must do it. They are summer activities for those who have failed or they are at the edge and I think they need to strengthen their knowledge in my subject/s for next year. Please, do not forget to bring it done in September and hand it in the first week you are back to school again, as year 8, 9 or 10. There is a link here, just in case the students have lost their documents with all the information.

For my year 11s students, I just hope you have a great summer and nice IGCSE results as well.

I also hope that this summer we rest a lot and we enjoy the sun, so we will be back to work with renewed strength and energy.

Regards and thank you very much one more time.
