All students in Room 16 are given weekly homework on a Monday.  It is usually due on a Friday, though may vary from time to time.  Due dates will be on the homework sheet or in the Homework Book each week.  Along with a task in their Homework Book, your child will also have spelling words to learn and a reading log to fill in each night in their diary.  Your encouragement of your child to complete their homework is appreciated.  Student homework can be completed in the Homework book or on a computer and emailed in.  All students are given a Studyladder account at the start of the year.  Their login and password will be stuck in the back of their diaries.  This is a website that will have tasks set on topics being studied at school or based on student interest.  The address is www.studyladder.co.nz
