Mid-January 2021 Newsletter

Primary schools

Dear colleagues


Welcome to 2021! The doubt and fear from last year continues but we need to stay positive and take one day at a time.

When will schools re-open, or won’t they? Whichever route is followed, you will still have to present lessons to your learners, offer them worksheets, tests and exercises.

Remember that Macrat has a wealth of supplementary material for English, Life Orientation and Creative Arts.

Much of this material is available online i.e. you can purchase the resources from the security of your own home or school and download the resources immediately.** The PDFs are easy to photocopy and distribute, either as printed or electronic copies, depending on your needs.

** if you have any problems with the digital site, please contact us as we are here to assist you?

Looking for interesting reading in 2021?
There is nothing better for a learner than for them to be engaged with ‘a good read’ from the beginning of the year. We recommend the following novels and can offer excellent resource material for each of the titles.

Boy  «  Goodnight Mister Tom  «  Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone    Holes  «  Hoot  «  The Pearl

MAKING THE GRADE ~ the ‘grown-ups’ guide to going to school


The Making the Grade series provides helpful and practical information for parents of pre-school and primary school children.

Available for Pre-school, Grade R, Grade 1 and Grade 4–6, these invaluable booklets were written by experienced teachers who understand the concerns of parents.

Available in English and Afrikaans.

Why not make the books available for sale at your next parents’ evening or orientation day?

Alternatively, if you are planning virtual meetings, you can direct the parents to our digital site where they are able to purchase the booklet, and download it immediately:
