This week, pupils are learning to use the conditional and the future tense in Spanish to discuss their future plans and aspirations.
This week, S2 are learning to describe the weather in Spanish and discuss what activities they do or places they go when the weather is a particular way.
Over the coming weeks, S1 pupils will be revising the unit “Mi Familia” which we worked on throughout the period of remote learning. This week, classes are revising vocabulary relating to family members.
We are delighted to be back in school and working with our young people.
During these three weeks all students will undertake English/Literacy in class with S5/6 having one double period of English on a Monday. Class teachers will set work for the rest of the week. Mrs Burton’s class also have a live lesson on Thursday during periods 3&4.
S4 will have a double period of English per fortnight. Students in classes 4.4-4.6 will be in class this week and students in classes 4.1-4.3 will be in next week. S4 students will be working on the “Sailmaker” past paper from 2014 this week with classes 4.4-4.6 working on this in class and classes 4.1-4.3 preparing this exercise this week and bringing it with them next week.
Classes in the B.G.E. (S1-3) will have one double period per week, all classes in a year group are working on the same thing and class teachers will set work which should be done during the rest of the week.
During this three weeks all Spanish and French will be undertake remotely and pupils should check MS Teams and ensure they complete the tasks set.
Hopefully all of our young people will be back in school full-time from Monday 19th April 2021 and we can move towards some kind of normality !
Please note there is a change to this week’s Live Lesson timetable which was published on the Languages Blog on Sunday. There will not now be a Live Lesson for Mrs Nelson’s Higher English class tomorrow. This lesson was NOT included on the list emailed to parents on Saturday.
Apologies for any confusion.

Today is World Book Day – a day we always celebrate. There are lots of fun activities on the Teams pages. We are very excited to launch the Taylor version of “The Masked Reader” – see if you can guess who is reading the book ! We can’t wait to share this with you ! Please find attached your World Book Day token. These can be exchanged for one of the £1 WBD books which are available in the Supermarkets or you can use it as part payment for any other book. Normally we would distribute these in school. Have fun and happy reading !!!!!
We are delighted to welcome back Mrs Alison Rooney to the faculty. Mrs Rooney has returned following a lengthy illness, we wish are well and are very glad to have her back with us. Mrs Rooney will be delivering both English and Spanish when our young people return.
We are also delighted to welcome Mrs Frances Fraser to the department. Mrs Fraser will be working in the English Department and we are delighted to have her on board. Mrs Fraser looks forward to meeting pupils and parents and getting to know the wonderful community that is Taylor High School.
This Thursday is World Book Day and although we are not in school we intend to celebrate this day with some fun activities for S1-2 which will remind us ALL why we love reading !
Watch this space !
