Assignment 2

You attend the School of the Air. Your new home tutor from England arrives in six weeks. Write a letter to your tutor to tell her/him about your home and school life.

Assignment 3

Produce a leaflet for the many tourists who visit the School of the Air information centre. The leaflet will give a wide range of information – What? Where? Why? When? How?
