We have been trying really hard in Year 6 to ensure that our handwriting is beautifully neat, joined and resting on the line. We make sure that our capital letters are tall and that they are not joined to the next letter.


Can you choose a poem or an extract from a text that you enjoy and copy it into your homework book.  You must use your best joined handwriting and be prepared to explain what you like about that particular piece of writing or poem.

Over the half term, we'd like you to think about the class' favourite book and author (David Walliams and The World's Worst Children).
