Language and routines

Terms such as "line up", "2 claps on 3", "hands up" and "tracking" will be new to many students and families joining Dixons McMillan. These are terms you will need to learn quickly and which relate to routines as part of a typical day in school. To help incoming scholars with this, we have put together a video presentation and quiz for you to read and complete before you arrive.  Watch the video then scroll down to find the Language and Routines Quiz.

Palabra del día: Progreso = Progress Ejemplo: El prgreso del estudiante es rápido! Spanish does not have the verb "to progress" like we do in English. Instead, it depends on whether the progress is "to develop" (desarrollar) or "to advance" (avanzar)
