This week's homework will involve preparations for our 'One World Week'. Our country of focus is Indonesia and as part of studying the country we are focus on the impact it has on pollution, in particular plastic pollution on the rest of the world. I'd like you to research some facts on plastic pollution in Indonesia and write these down in your homework books to give us a good basis for our work next week. Many of the facts you will collect will be numbers, therefore this homework will cover literacy and numeracy work. Think about what these facts mean and don't just write them down.

Science/Maths - Over the holidays I'd like you to record the meter readings for you families gas and electricity usage in your home. Think of how you could record your results. You will need to record the meter readings at the beginning of the holidays and at the end of the holidays (don't forget the unit of measurement) for both electricity and gas. Could you then calculate how much you have used over the Christmas break. This data will be used in class on our return.
Hope you have a happy Christmas and New Year. See you all in 2019 :)
