Year 5 Homework due Thursday 20th July 2017
Have you enjoyed year 5? We hope so! The year 5 teachers are now trying to plan which activities and learning we should do again next year- as well as which ones perhaps were not so popular and could be improved- and we need your help!
Please write us a persuasive letter, or make a poster, to tell us about the things you have enjoyed and what we should try and do again next year. Remember to use the features of persuasive writing to really convince us. You wouldn't want us to ignore your fantastic suggestions, would you?
We look forward to reading your ideas.
