The genre that we are studying this term is recounts. For this week your writing activity is to recount the events you have read so far as a letter. I have attached a letter as an example for you to follow.
You will need to use your imagination to pretend that you are the Swallow, who is contacting his friends to explain why he has not caught up with them on their journey to Egypt. The Swallow would probably want to give his friends his reasons for not being with them, so make sure to include this in your letter.
Our GPS focus this week is the Present Perfect tense, so for an additional challenge you could try to include this in your letter writing.
