1) LESSONS THIS COMING WEEK
MONDAY 9TH OCTOBER 2017 - Grade 3 Lesson
We will meet as usual at Dainfern Valley Shopping Centre outside Piatto at 9am on Monday.
Our theme over the next few weeks is "UNDER THE SEA".
The focus this coming Monday will be on Revision of the target sounds that were covered last term, but you can start discussing the various "sea animals" in the attached document in preparation for our lesson on 16 September when we will explain what an aquarium is to our learners.
The Green and Purple groups will
- continue to revise the sounds covered to date and discriminate between sounds that are confused such as the "ee" and "i".
- continue to write and edit their work
- continue introducing the concept that some sound pictures have more than one letter - revise the [ck] and the various ways to show the "k" sound such as the [c] and [k] covered already. [qu] to be introduced.
TUESDAY 10 October 2017 - Grade 2 Lesson
We now meet at at 8:30am on a Tuesday in the parking lot outside Piatto's at Dainfern Valley Shopping Centre. We leave a few minutes after 8:30 so that we're able to get to the school for a 9am start.

3) SATURDAY BUDDY READER PROGRAMME
Deepa Rai, one of our Tuesday volunteers will be working with the school and Edu Fun to co-ordinate a Saturday Buddy Reading programme with a group of Grade 3 learners at Diepsloot Combined School for the final term.
This is a good opportunity for
The Grade 3 learners who are a bit behind with their reading to get a boost before the end of the year.
Potential volunteers who work or go to school in the week to get involved on a weekend
Current volunteers to involve their spouses and children in volunteer work.
High school children to clock their "community hours" which are compulsory at several schools.
Reading Therapists in training to gain practical experience and meet their internship requirements whilst providing 1:1 or small group reading instruction to children who would not be able to afford private lessons, which is a real – win-win.
The programme will start on Saturday 14 October at Diepsloot Combined School and run until Saturday 18 November 2017. (6 sessions until the end of year).
Times: 10am to 12pm.
We will meet at Dainfern Valley Shopping Centre at 9:30am on Saturday 14 October and car pool to the school.
There will be a brief Buddy Reader workshop for new volunteers on the first Saturday.
We will be appealing to current volunteers to support us on Day 1 of the programme as you will be more familiar
General Needs - FEP students
Smart phones, laptops and toiletries are items that are needed by most students. It is difficult to get second hand lap tops as they are often destroyed to protect confidential data and software. If you're able to access working lap tops where the hard drives have been removed, we will still be able to use them as buying a hard drive is cheaper than buying a new lap top.
Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
