Hello, near Year 7s!
We enjoyed meeting you over the induction days – and hope you will enjoy the task we’ve set you for the summer.
Here’s what we’d like you to do:
- Cover your reading journal in a way that represents you and your taste in books. (Make sure you include your name!)
- Respond to the books you read over the summer in a creative way. You should include the title and the author, but the rest is up to you. You could:
- Write a review
- Draw a picture that represents how you feel about the book
- Write a chapter continuing the story
- Write a diary entry for one of the characters
- Create a new cover for the book
- Anything else you can think of!
You should aim to read (and respond to) 2 to 5 books over the holiday.
Don’t forget to bring your journal with you for the first lesson back!
If you have any questions, get in touch with us. You can email Mr Ford, the Head of Faculty, on email@example.com.
Looking for your summer holiday homework?
You’ve come to the right place!
Remember: the deadline for all work is your first English lesson back after the summer break.
Enjoy the holidays, and make sure that you get some well-earned rest once you’ve got these bits and bobs done!
