Tinkerbell and the Pirate Fairy - Movie Week September 2014

This month's movie should suit both boys and girls as it contains pirates and fairies. Tinkerbell and the Pirate Fairy will be showing at Horne Learning Services this week where a little sprinkling of fairy dust can go a long way!


As usual, students will have questions to answer, and due to the movie being a little shorter than usual, they will be engaged in a related speaking assignment for the remainder of the class.

Sit back and enjoy!

The "Chocolate" lesson - for adults

This month we are conducting a special lesson dedicated to chocolate - the food of the deities. Students will read a short article about chocolate, where it comes from, and how it grows. They will answer several comprehension questions on the topic.

Mr. Duncan will then present five different chocolate items for tasting. Students will then right down lists of words that describe the taste of each piece of chocolate.

Samples of chocolate ready for tasting in adult classes in September at Horne Learning Services

The final part of the lesson will see students have an opportunity to speak to the class on the topic of chocolate.

We are looking forward to this exciting class and hope our students will find it worthwhile and memorable!
