Homework term 1 2018

Week 8

Great work team with getting your homework done last week.

This week you need to do:

  1. Reading log signed 5 times for the week
  2. Hotmaths-Addition Strategies
  3. 100 Word Challenge (try to set yourself a writing goal at the start, and remember at least once a month to add an audacity file of you reading this)
  4. BTN reflection -this week please reflect on History of Voting: 24/05/2016, Behind the News
  5. Comment on at least 2 other blogs- remember to be relevant, constructive and appropriate. There’s hints for leaving comments here: 
  6.  Find out who your representatives are in the Federal House of Representatives & the Senate. You can use these sites: House of Representatives membersSenators  .  You’ll notice that 12 senators come up. This is because our senators are elected by our whole state, not by our electorate.  You may need your parents’ help to identify your postcode or your electorate, or you can use this site: Find My Electorate

Remember to plan your homework week early, and come and chat to me if you’re having any issues.
