Writing weekly focus – Letter writing

 

So we have made it to the final week of the school year and Mrs Mendoza and Mr Clargo would just like to say how proud we are of you and that we hope you have a wonderful summer holiday!

 

You may or may not have received your school report but if you have you will now also know who your teacher is next year! 

 

This week you should write a letter to your new teacher using the formal letter writing style we have been using. 

 

In your letter you should let your teacher know how you are feeling about coming back to school in September. Are you excited? Nervous? 

 

Let them know a little bit about you. What you like/dislike, when your birthday is, what things you are really good at, what things you find a little bit tricky.

 

What subjects and topics are you looking forward to in Year 4?

 

Do you have any targets that you want to share with your new teacher? 

 

Maybe you want to improve your handwriting. Maybe you want to learn all of your times tables up to 12 x 12.

 

Also let your teacher know what your plans are for the Summer holidays. Maybe you and your family are planning to go somewhere. Is it in England? Is it to another country. Perhaps you are all planning to stay close to home and visit local parks.

 

The template below will help.

 

 

Please try to share your letters by uploading them to the Anson blog - we love to see how hard you are working!
