OGAT Pen Pals

Could you write a letter to someone?

Just because school is closed, it doesn't mean we can't reach out in different way!

The aim of this is to get you writing! It's simple:

  • Write a letter to a student in another year group (you decide who you're writing too!).

  • You can tell them about your school, your favourite lessons or what it is you like doing in your own free time

  • Share your letter via the Google Form and we'll help it along the way!

What will you need:


This activity can be done either on a computer, or you can hand write it.

  • On the computer?- you just need to create a Google Doc by clicking here, and use this document to structure your review.

  • Not on the computer? - A pen and some lined paper. If you want to get really creative, some colouring pencils so that you can draw pictures.

  1. Watch the video from Mr Highnett about what to include in your OGAT pen pals letter.

  2. Write your pen pals letter and submit it on the form. If you have done it on paper, take a photo of it and upload that instead of the document

Tell us about it!

How you can support your child

If you are happy to do so, upload your pen pal letter, you can submit it using the form found in the navigation bar titled "Tell us about it." You can also tweet us and tag @OGATrust on twitter, don't forget tagging your academy twitter account as well!

You can help out too! How?

  • Give your child some ideas about what to write.

  • Write about an experience you have shared together in the letter

  • Check the letter for spelling and grammar before sending.
