An Academy of the Great Learners Trust



Welcome back after the half term holidays. Firstly, WOW!! All your Great Mythenden stories before half term were incredible! I am so proud of you all and loved reading each and every one of them!


I know we are going to be stopping the emails and updates from me now distance learning has changed, but I have had a few emails hearing what you have been up to which was nice. But I would love to know a bit more about what did. When we come back from a holiday or half term at school we always write our ‘news’ so you know how it works! This is a great way to practice writing in sentences, using punctuation and as a way of connecting with our friends and teachers to share what we have been up to. Please try and use different sentences openers, not just ‘I went’ or ‘I did’. You could try, ‘On Tuesday’, ‘In the morning’, ‘After that’ etc! Feel free to draw a picture at the end. Use our sentence checklist to remind you! First write the dotty date 2.6.20 and the title ‘My Half Term News’ at the top of you page and then start your recount!
