Year 6 Homework

 

Year 6 Homework – 14th September 2018

This week we have been writing non-chronological reports about the Mayans. For homework, we would like you to write a non-chronological report about a subject of your choice. Remember to use the features of this type of writing and to add diagrams/illustrations if you think it would improve the finished report. We look forward to seeing your work. This is due in by Thursday 20th September. Don't forget to practise your multiplication tables and read the library books you have borrowed. You can use your reading record books to record any books that you read at home, as well as at school.

Mr Bendon & Mrs Peatfield
