Term 2 Week 1 Homework


WALT: Learn words from essential words list and extension word list.

Learn the 10 spelling words for the week. Practice learning them everyday. Copy and complete the grid below for each word.

Write out the questions and answers to the 8 timetables (up to 12) in your book. Practise reciting them with someone at home and get them to time you. Record your fastest time.

Challenge: How fast can you recite them backwards!


Sometimes expressions have double meanings, and mean something different to what is actually said.

Example: I've got a bone to pick with you! means you have a disagreement to settle with someone.

What do you think these expressions mean?

1. Don't make a mountain out of a molehill.
2. That was the last straw!
3. Waiting for a phone call, I was on tenterhooks.
4. I wash my hands of the matter.

Challenge: What is the technical term for these expressions?


You must read for at least 15 minutes each night. Record your reading in the table below.

Media Studies:

Last Friday night was a busy one for TV viewers. Not only was there a fancy royal wedding in London but New Zealand sporting history was made in the NBL final!

Find an article from the newspaper or the news website about one of these events. Read it and identify the Who, What, When, Where and Why by highlighting the text. Be prepared to share your article on Friday in class.
