Please be there at 10:00 am, remember this is a requirement on the days we have live lessons.

 

Second, you must now register your name each day, to show you have been online. If you do not, it is counted as an absence. 

 

Next week the website will be changing a bit, there will be a new way for you to access the work, so don't be surprised if things look a bit different on Monday.

 

I just want to remind all of you how important it is to keep getting up and being there for the lessons, to keep doing your work and being the best you can be. There is now a timetable of daily expectations, we want to see more work being done and sent in to us, so keep it up.

Letter writing Part A

Letter Writing Part B

Informal letters are letters we write to our friends, they use chatty language and friendly phrases.

Formal letters are the sort of letters we might write to a job, boss or teacher. They are professionally written and use formal language. 

 

Ignore the part about page 31 and Kirsty, instead use this section for the following.

 

If you have completed the work in the writing letter section, I would like you to use the the Writing a letter page to have a go at writing a formal letter to Mr Dodderidge. In it you can write about the things you have been learning during lockdown, the benefits of live lessons, what you like and dislike about lockdown. 

You can show off some of the things we have been learning, try and use fronted adverbials. Try to include some of your opinions.

Words often change depending on whether you are speaking, or writing about 1 thing, or more than one thing.

 

SINGULAR means one thing. 

PLURAL means more than one thing.
