Form Tutors - Mr Joe Garrett and Mrs Thokozani Katimba
In Term 2, reading widely is our manner of life. After learning how to properly punctuate our work and write commendable formal letters, we are then attempting to form distinctions between facts and opinions. We hope to be able to identify topic sentences, as well as grow our vocabulary vastly by understanding the role of synonyms and antonyms. We are reading our way through Ballads, Poems and many other Folktales. From there, we hope to be competent writers, able to write short stories that evoke curiosity and leave great impact on the reader.
