Welcome to our Year 6 Blog!

We are going to use blogging as a tool to improve our literacy skills, in particular our focus will be writing. We will be writing using lots of different genres which could include diary entries, debates, story starters, story settings and many more.

We know we will have to try our very best with our writing as our audience is the potentially the whole of the world wide web.

All comments will go to be moderated before going live.
