Letter to your new form tutor/ head of year- Planning


I'm sure you'll agree that this year has been extremely different for everyone! As we aren't doing the normal transition activities, I would like you to plan and write a letter to your new form tutor /head of year (hopefully you know their name by now) This formal letter will introduce you and tell them a bit more about yourself. You can either send/email the letter or take it to school in September. It is really important that this letter showcases your best writing abilities so check the letter for spelling, presentation and grammar before you seal the envelope or click send.




Today you will spend some time planning out the different points you will make. Planning writing is always a good thing before you begin - it will save you time!


Here are some areas which you may like to cover:


-Strengths in school


-Areas you would like to develop 


-Hobbies in or outside of school


-Information about home e.g. pets, family members


-What you are looking forward to next year


I'm not advising that this is written in this order - you will want to sequence it carefully.


This shouldn't be any longer than an A4 page on Word. You may want to type your ideas straight onto the computer and then your parents will be able to email this across to school that you are attending in September. Alternatively, a handwritten letter is a great way to show off your neatly joined handwriting and presentation skills.
