NF HOMEWORK CLUB WEEK #3 (Sept 28-Oct 02)

Hello, everyone, and welcome to Week 3 of the NEWS FLASH HOMEWORK CLUB! 

Ok, so, for those of you who are new to this, it's quite simple -- below are your five activites for the week. Two are audio (quiz and mental maths challenge), while the other three involve reading and writing. You can do one, do some, or do all. It's really up to you -- especially if your teacher has not given you a list. They won't take too long, and you will be able to find out how you did every Friday, when we post the answers in an audio post - just like the quiz and maths challenge - from 9 A.M. onwards. 

So, click on the pictures below to access the activities ... and enjoy!
