Welcome to my Homework Book
This is my special book and I choose how I present my work in it.
Each Friday I am given a learning objective, this may relate to work we have covered in class or it may ask for me to research a new topic. I may be given examples to help me with my work. I am expected to use at least one A4 page of my book each week.
I can ask an adult for help or support with ideas, or in finding information. We can work together. I can use drawings, photographs, book or computers to help, but if I copy any work I must fully understand what I have written. I can present my work using ICT as long as it is in my own words.
My completed Homework book must be in by the following Wednesday.
If I find my homework hard, or am stuck for ideas I can ask my teacher, who can help me during a lunch-time.
