This week students do not have a blogging activity to complete. I am though ‘posting’ what the expectation for homework is for week 6, due on the 29/8/12.

1. Students have been given new Mathletics tasks, one for each night.

2. Religion focus – Students are to trace their hand on a page in their homework book (students may also like to trace their parents’ hand). They then need to ask each person in their family to write on each finger how they show love and care for each other. Students can then decorate their page with pictures of their family.
