Homework

English

Date given: 05.07.19

Due in: 10.07.19

To use the planning sheet to help you draft and then hand write in best a thank you letter on A4 coloured paper. This to show our appreciation for recent school trips and visitors. Each class has been given a different person to write to:

6H- Sevenoaks Science. Writing to Mrs Mylod and Mr Dickinson

6P – Mr Manby and Mr Lang CPR training

6B – Kent Police for our recent school trip to their headquarters. Writing to PC Emma Hobbs.

These letters should be carefully written so that they do not include any spelling or punctuation errors and are an opportunity for you to share your fantastic writing and presentation skills.

 Also, please ensure that your costume is complete and brought into school on Wednesday 10th July on a named coat hanger. It is essential that everyone’s costume is brought in on this day.
