Communication and Social

If you did your ATL reflections earlier in the year, you should be able to just copy and paste them underneath that strand (then tart them up a bit, so they sound fancy/formal).

If you have not, use the ATL spreadsheet to help you. (It’s also linked in the cheat sheet)

I’ve also put a video to explain this further here.
