Next week you will be given time to do your English transition project so this is your last week of English home learning from Witton. Therefore, we thought it would be nice to do some writing related to your memories of the last 3 years. Each day you will be given a new writing challenge to complete. Enjoy!
Share your favourite pieces of work with your teachers by uploading to Epraise.
Start the week by creating a memories page. see the example below to see what you could include and how you could set it out. It can be memories from any year in Witton.
Create a poem about your time at middle school. You might include certain classrooms, teachers, activities, trips, lessons, memories, friends. You can choose whether to do an acrostic or a kennings. See the examples below to give you ideas.
Imagine you are creating something to go inside a time capsule that will be locked and only opened in 10 years. What would you include? What do you want to tell your future self?
- hopes and dreams
- wishes for the future
- a drawing of what you look like now
- your favourite things
- what you have achieved and would like to achieve

Create your own quote about moving on to a new school or new challenge. Once you are happy with the wording, think about your design and if you will include any pictures. Perhaps you could use the calligraphy skills you learned in art a few weeks ago. Have a look at the examples below for ideas.
Write a leavers speech. Imagine you are getting up on the school stage and performing a goodbye speech. What would you say? How would you describe your 3 years at Witton? What memories or funny moments would you share? What advice would you give to your classmates about moving on to high school?
How to give a school leaving speech:
- Plan ahead. Don't assume you'll be able to pull off a last-minute speech.
- Keep it short. Yours is going to be one of many speeches – and your audience is mainly young.
- Laugh at yourself.
- Say thank you.
- Stick to the positives.
