English- Letter Writing


This week, the children will be planning and writing their own letter. The children have been learning about Kenya within their Topic work. The model text aims to get the children thinking about other cultures and compare their school day with one in Kenya as well as learning how to write an informal letter. The children have a range of SPAG, comprehension and writing tasks to complete to aid their learning.


For any questions, additional support or feedback on their work please email our class email ( I look forward to reading them! 


Most importantly, have fun creating!
