This booklet is your responsibility and there are certain things
you must make sure you do when completing your English
homework in this booklet.

   1     Get your parent to sign that you have done the work
         yourself, with little or no help, on the night you do it.
   2     Sign it yourself to say it was your own work
   3     At school, a teacher or peer will mark your work in class
         and put their signature on your work
   4     Your booklet is expensive to produce so don’t lose it! If
         you do, you will have to purchase another one.

I think that is it. So enjoy your learning and let’s make English
great!
