Week beginning 1st June
Writing for a Purpose
Some of you had a good go at the 'writing for a purpose' tasks.
These tasks are really important as it uses all the skills you have learnt in english and allows you to write for a reason, a real life situation that could be useful in later life.
A writing challenge for you, if you go to the link below, if you have completed one of the tasks try another one
The Quick-Fire Write challenges you to write around 200 words based on the 4 questions at the end of each video, around 50 words per question! Grab yourself a paper and pen, get writing, then send your work in to us at email@example.com.
Good luck and we would love to read some of them

This week, why don’t you try writing something that you actually want to write - something that means something to you and interests you. This can be anything: a letter, an email, a story, a journalistic piece of writing, an information piece of writing, a poem, persuasive writing…and any other ideas you might have. It can be absolutely anything!! Enjoy it and I look forward to reading what you chose to write about J !
I have also made a new quiz live on spag.com. There are a lot of live tests on there which you are more than welcome to try (some of you have already completed them) but the one I have made ‘live’ this week is: ‘Formal and Informal (A)’, posted on 4th May. If you would like to revise this subject before then please visit the following website where you can currently set up a free account and access all kinds of resources:
