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!

In this month’s Editing Activity, we need you to find the 8 incorrect spellings.
An auction usually involves celling items to people through ‘bidding’.
This is were oﬀers (bids) are taken from the crowd (or from people on fones or online).
When someone wants to buy an item, they might rase their hand or nod their head to show they are bidding.
An auctioneer (the person in charge) will see this and akcept their bid.
It's common for people to get carried away bidding against each other.
When buyers start competeing this way, the price is driven up, which is good for the sellar.
The item is eventually sold to the highest bidder – the one who is willing to pay the most.
When an item is sold, the auctioneer hammers down on timbur using a small wooden mallet called a gavel.
