Hi everyone,

I put up a post via my ph last night but it appears that it didn’t go on my blog. I’m terribly sorry about that!

Anyway, in effect, my post said that it appears that some of you are struggling with the homework and you may use today to work on it and refine it.

Please let your relief teacher know how it’s going today and IF we need to I we will finish it off together in class tomorrow, Wednesday.

Mrs. Still.

Hi everyone,

Sorry about the late post.

Remember that your homework for tonight is to go over the hand out sheet I gave about Dark They were and Golden Eyed.

Do activities:
1 a), b)

2 a), b)-your paragraphs for this one only need to be a few sentences long, c) we answered this one quite extensively today in class, and d)

If you have finished these and want to extend yourself, complete activities 3 a)-e)

Activity 3 will be completed in class, so if you don’t do it at home, that’s ok.

Thank you for all your hard work, everyone. You are doing great!

Dear all,

I cannot upload the Difficult Word Chart because I only have a photocopiable version. Please take one from the back of our room (on top of the cardboard shelving) if you want one. I will place them there today.

Please remember the homework that is due tomorrow periods 6&7.

During that time I will also be pausing to have a look at all the homework that has been due this week (notes/annotations from your Chapter 1 Contexts and Conventions reading AND from your short story reading of The Hanging.

Homework due tomorrow:

1. Identify key passages or words that contribute to the theme(s) of The Hanging. Explain in your own words the theme(s).

2. Read and take notes of Chapter 2 Contexts & Conventions for characterisation.

3. Create a Codes of Characterisation Table (p.32 Contexts & Conventions) for the prisoner, the superintendent, Francis the head jailer and the Indian warders. Can you find at least 3 textual signs for each?

See you then.

Mrs Still
