Homework 16/12/2016

Dear students,

Your Homework for after the holidays is:

An IPC task: Make a poster about our new personal learning goal, ‘resilience’. Can you think of a time when you have been resilient? For example, learning to ride your bike? Or, can you think of a famous person who has shown resilience in their life? Please bring this into school after the holidays and we will display them around the school.

Numeracy practice:

  • Log in ActiveLearn and practise numeracy tasks allocated in your account.
  • Revise how to add, subtract and revise fractions with the worksheets given before holidays.

Have a wonderful time!

Best wishes,

Ms Chalkiopoulou
