The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 48

VIII.-Junior Class (Mr. Balsille's)

VIII.-Junior Class (Mr. Balsille's).

This class has been worked in two divisions, as some were not equally advanced with their neighbours. The average attendance was fully 10 per cent, better than last year. The work gone over by the First Division consisted of the compound rules in money, square measure, &c., vulgar fractions, simple interest, and practice; together with the making out of accounts and letter writing. The work of the Second Division embraced the simple and compound rules, together with bills of parcels and practice, as well as letter writing. There has been a greater number doing home exercises this year, and some deserve great credit for the manner in which they have executed the work. In short, the work done page 12 this year has been far more satisfactory than hitherto. I was much pleased with the progress many made in the subject of letter writing.
