  1. Hi all, thanks for the feedback about the homework. Keep your feedback coming in class and we will continue to adapt the homework so it can be easily understood. Don’t forget you can come and ask one of your classroom teachers (8.50am – 9am is a good time) if you’re having particular trouble with an activity. Also, there is no expectation that the extension tasks need to be done – only if you are keen for an extra challenge (as sometimes these are quite hard).
    Thanks – Your 5/6 teachers
