Oral Presentation Homework

In weeks 8, 9 and 10 students will be asked to give an oral presentation about significant family events/traditions. You can make your presentation using a prompt such a poster, keynote/powerpoint (on a USB), artefact or costume.

The presentation should include, but is not limited to:
• The type of event and why you celebrate/commemorate it.
• Who is involved in the event?
• Where does it take place?
• What do you do?
• Why do you do these things?

Examples (but not exclusively) include Christmas, Birthdays, Religious ceremonies, to Annual Camping Trips.

Please ensure your student is prepared to share by the Mon 27 Nov.

Homework Term 4

For the remainder of the year, we will not be sending sight word spelling home. Home readers will be sent home until Week 7 when they all need to be returned. To finish off the year, students will be presenting an oral language project. Further details about this to come!


After a discussion with several parents this morning I have decided that just for this week there would be limited homework. I realise that the children are very tired with swimming lessons on everyday and parents have heaps to do just drying and repacking swimming gear. I have sent home homework folders today containing only a home reader. Homework will resume as usual next week.

Week 10 Homework

Nextweek there will be no home reading sent home for homework. All home readers are due back tomorrow so a stock take can be done before we move our reading trolley onto another class. The homework folder will still come home as normal on Monday to complete the rest of the homework grid.
