Pen Pals

Pen Pals

Hello everyone, welcome back to school! I hope you are well rested and ready for another term of excitement and fun!

I know I am (now that it is midday and I can have a coffee and food). No but really, I stood in the classroom yesterday and felt so grateful to be there. January is a hard month, but I am conquering it with my amazing colleagues and exciting lessons.

Anyway, enough about me. I wanted to share something that we collaborated on last year that has definitely secured me some more interest from our learners. I teamed up with the English Teacher from Lakeside School to give our children an additional learning opportunity – to have their very own pen pal!

We tied this into the current topic by giving the children the task of writing about their hometown. They worked hard on beautifully presented letters to send to the children at Lakeside School. The children used their pupil book resources, word mats and dictionaries to complete their letters and thought of questions they would like to ask the other children about their lives.

Finding opportunities to improve engagement and excitement really can hook them into the learning even more. We WILL make English fun and we WILL have fluent children!
