English - Transition to Year 7
Yesterday you hopefully started planning your letter to your new school. Use today to start and/or finish your letter. Take a photo and email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I would love to see some of your work!
Remember this letter will want to be personal but still keeping a formal tone to make a good impression - neat handwriting would also be a good idea so your new tutor sees your best work!

Watch this interview with Paralympic gold medallist Helena Lucas. In this interview it talks about the dedication needed to be a successful sportsperson. Set yourself a goal to work on every day for the next week. You could create a poster outlining your goal and the steps you will take each day to work towards it.

Which route will you take?
