Are you ready?

Next week you take your SAT tests. You have all worked really hard during the year and I am proud of each of you, you should be really confident and ready for next week.

Can you share with other people the things that you have done to prepare for these important tests and why your confidence is so high? Think about all the work you have done and the practice tests, not to mention all the homework you have completed.

How very persuasive.

We have started a new unit of work on persuasive writing and balanced arguments.

Your homework this week is to write a paragraph which either supports or opposes the statement:

“Children should get homework every night.”

Remember to include the connectives: additionally, also, moreover, in addition to, as well as, therefore and  consequently – these will really add strength to your argument.
