Autumn Project Work
Each term we expect you to carry out a project at home which gives you time to focus on a longer piece of work. You will then get the opportunity to share and present your work to the class. You can choose one of the tasks from the attached page, or come up with an idea of your own relating to the work we cover in class this term.
