Dear parents,

I would like you know, Term 3 is very short, so the pupils will need to design a poster about 'Internet Safety' or 'Cyber bullying'.

The pupils can use paint, colours, markers or any other material for it. They are free to decide if they want to use Microsoft Paint and print it or they can do it by hand.

The poster needs to have the pupil's name, class colour and ICT subject on it.
Size: A3 (29.7 cm x 42 cm)

The due date is the 21st of May 2017.

Thank you.
Mrs Prado
