Homework week 2

Your homework for this week will require you to unpack a seed on your favourite hobby or sport that you do/play outside of school. For example it may be dancing, fishing, playing football, computer games, listening to music, etc.

Please unpack the seed in your inquiry/homework book. Use the subheadings  – FEEL (How does your sport/hobby make you feel?), THINK (What do you think about your sport/hobby?), WONDER (Write down questions about your sport) and PAST EXPERIENCE (Describe a past experience that you clearly remember about your hobby/sport).

Remember to try and use powerful language such as replacing words with synonyms (better words).

This piece of homework will be due back on Monday 11th of February. Feedback for your homework will be written as a comment on this post.
