  1. 1. Spring 1 Homework Weekend homework will involve longer tasks but will take just under two weeks to complete. The aim of this homework is to encourage you to think ‘outside the box’ – to develop your ability to think creatively. It may seem strange to start with, but after a while we think you will enjoy the tasks and that the skills you develop will help you to work more independently at high school. If you want to complete your homework on the computer and either: email it in, create a Prezi, use slide-share to post on the blog then these are strongly encouraged. (Blog username: year6 Password: m217hh) If you do not have a computer, are not able to access the internet, or simply prefer it, then it is acceptable to bring in handwritten work. Your homework MUST be completed on time. You will not be told HOW your homework will be marked. Sometimes the teacher will mark it, sometimes a friend, it could even be marked in a group. If you don’t complete your homework you will have to do it during your own time whilst at school.
