Having now met your new teacher, Mrs Sharp, we'd like you to write her a letter introducing yourself.  Today you are going to plan your letter.  Think about what each of your paragraphs will contain and write a few notes under each heading.  We have written an example of a plan below with some suitable statements for you to write about (remember this is just a plan, not your final letter) : 


Paragraph 1 - All about me.

  • my interests and hobbies
  • my family and pets,
  • what I enjoy doing at school,
  • which clubs I have attended this year inside and outside of school.


Paragraph 2 - Year 3

  • what I enjoyed about Year 3,
  • what I found difficult in Year 3,
  • what I tried to improve on in Year 3


Paragraph 3 - Year 4

  • what I am looking forward to about going into Year 4
  • what I hope to improve on in Year 4 - personal targets,
  • any questions I have about Year 4.


Paragraph 4 - ending

  • what I am planning to do over the summer holidays,
  • end with a personal message to Mrs Sharp (e.g. I hope you have a lovely summer and look forward to seeing you in September)
