Hello Year 7. What a pleasure it was to meet you today, I think that this class has the potential to truly shine at English!

Your first homework is to complete your letter to me, which tells me about yourself and your experience of school. Remember to write in the style of a letter – starting with “Dear Ms Turner,” and finishing with a sign off such as “Yours sincerely…”

We also discussed the importance of using paragraphs to separate your ideas and decided that there should be a minimum of three paragraphs which could include information about your interests in and outside of school, your reading, plus your hopes and goals for English this year.

I look forward to reading these next week!

All the best, Ms Turner.
