At In Spanish, we follow a story based approach split into thematic units. We believe in Immersion Education and we use everyday life vocabulary In Spanish. We balance content that is fun and educational, as we know kids learn best by playing and having fun. Each class we do stories, songs, movement, pretend play and games In Spanish. We give children a sense of achievement, which helps them develop self-confidence. The program complies with the Australia’s early years learning framework.

Each page of this memory book provides a large pocket for you to keep awards, drawings, certificates, report cards, photos and other mementos. My School Years is a special place for you to safely keep these precious memories. You and your child will love looking back through this book again and again.

My school years memory book

Exactly what I expected and can’t wait to fill in – great follow on from the books you get when your children are first born to five years old  – so important to capture the memories and this is a great way to do it. Wow, bought this for my little boy as a keepsake, so looking forward to filling it in together and looking back over it through the years, lovely how there is room for photos, certificates in little folders, i wish i had the same thing when i was young.
