In Writing we have been learning to: Write a formal letter.
We have followed the writing process and have planned and drafted a formal letter.
Here is a link to our online Modelling book.
This shows the process that we have followed.
Here is the letter that I have written ( Link the draft of your letter here)
Here is my reflection on the letter writing that we have done.
One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was to always use punctuation in your writing
My next step is: look for more opportunities to put my letter writing knowledge into practice in the future.

I can successfully research a current event.
Here is a link to our online modelling book for this unit of learning.
- Year ⅚ : I can locate and summarise ideas by skimming or scanning, by identifying key words, topic sentences, and key questions, or by using subheadings
Each week we have read a short text about a current event/ topic. We then formed questions based on what we had read. After this we researched the answers to our questions and finally we gave our opinions on what we had found out.
Here is some evidence of my learning.
My Next Step is to continue to apply the reading and research skills that I have learned in a variety of other areas.
