Dear TIS parents

What a fun way to start November! The children, staff and parents all thoroughly enjoyed Sports Day today. Well done to all of the participants!

Yesterday, Kristine, Greg, Josie and Tonya hosted a workshop on the TIS literacy programme. The session was well attended and feedback from parents was very positive. The teachers did a great job of explaining how Common Core is delivered through the framework of the Readers-Writers Workshop and the parents got a good understanding of how literacy is taught at TIS to children of differing language abilities. We would like to say a huge thank you to Kristine, Greg, Josie and Tonya for their time and effort with this presentation.

The literacy workshop provided lots of useful information and also provided context for the Writing Workshop on November 12th. Please see the details of this workshop in the following pages.
