Year 10
This week I am sending three tasks (attached below) related to weekend activities:

  2. Was hast du am Wochenende gemacht? (write sentences using the Perfekt tense)
  3. Das Wochenende planen (+ Video explaining this handout)

Unfortunately I am not seeing much effort from this Year group. It is of utmost importance to continue working from home and do the HW tasks I send you. In case of difficulty you know you can contact me on MS Teams, Messenger, ilearn & Zoom. I am just a call/chat away. Here are this week’s tasks related to the chapter Essen & Trinken (attached below):
  1. Gesund oder ungesund (reading comprehension focusing on healthy vs unhealthy eating)
  2. Interview in der Klasse (interview you classmates using any app you want & fill in the table with their answers)

I miss you all! Stay safe!
