English Starter Task

Write a letter to your new English teacher, which introduces yourself.

 Some background information about yourself e.g. what school you have
come from, where you live
 What you have done in the summer

 What courses you are going to be doing at Priestley and why have you
chosen them
 Your past experiences of English in school e.g. the reasons why you
haven’t got a grade 4 already, what you are good at, what you don’t like
 Your hopes for the future
 Anything else which you would like to include

Please do not include anything that you would rather not share.

Write around 1-2 sides of A4 if you can. You can use a computer if you want
to. Please bring this to your first English lesson.

The letter will help us to understand what your written expression is like, and
what experiences you have had in the past so that we can build on these
throughout your English course at Priestley.

The resources below are here to help you with this session. The documents can be downloaded to your device and web links can be viewed online. 


What to do when you're finished ?

Keep a copy of your work safe until your first days at college. Bring it with you for your first lesson in this subject.
