Year 5 Homework
Homework due Wednesday 13th February
Following our work on Internet safety, your homework this week is to design and create an A4 poster. Pick one of the E-Safety letters / words and draw a picture to show why it’s important. The winning entries will become desktop backgrounds on the school computers!
Make sure that it is bright and colourful and good luck!
To help you with your posters, the information that you'll need about our SMART rules are attached below:
We are also having a cake sale!
You will have received a letter via email explaining that we are holding a KS2 cake sale next week to celebrate our Fairtrade topic, and to help raise funds for our London Zoo trip. As an additional homework, we would like the class to bring in some baked goods to sell. The dates are:
5P: Tuesday 12th February
5M: Wednesday 13th February
5W: Thursday 14th February
We encourage the cakes to be baked with as many Fairtrade ingredients as possible. Please make sure all products are 100% nut free.
