NB This work can not be pages of information copied from the internet but some use of the internet is fine. Your teacher will offer you extra guidance if you wish at any stage of the project. These projects will be marked by the teacher you have at present and you will show your project to the rest of your class. The best projects will receive WHS vouchers, Head teacher praise post cards and reward points. At the end of the school year we will be holding a Technology Evening where the best work will be displayed for parents to see. This Home Learning is also shown on the school website so there is no excuse if you lose this sheet! Have fun with this project, doing which ever area interests you and produce your best work.
