Writing Letters!

 

Wednesday - To identify key features of a text.

 

Today we are going to ‘Read as a Writer,’ which means we’re going to look closely at our model text to see what each section does, and some of the words it uses to achieve this.

 

Step 1: Re-read our model text.

 

                             

 

Step 2: Go through the PowerPoint presentation to find out about the key features of a letter.  (The model text is in black and my notes are in green.) 

 

Step 3: Choose your challenge choice from the list below!

 

Your Challenge Choices:

 

Hot & Spicy: On the Hot & Spicy PDF below there is a muddled up version of Harold's letter. Can you put it in the right order?

Remember the order is: - Address, Greeting, News, Question and Sign Off.

You could do this by printing it off, chopping it up and rearranging it OR you could write it out in the correct order (great handwriting practice) OR you could use the colours of each paragraph to simply write down which order they should come in (Address = red, Greeting = brown etc).

 

Mega Hot: On the Mega Hot PDF below there is a muddled up letter written by Mummy pig back to Harold. It is all mixed up! Can you put it in the right order?

Remember the order is: - Address, Greeting, News, Question and Sign Off.

You could do this by printing it off, chopping it up and rearranging it OR you could write it out in the correct order (great handwriting practice) OR you could use the colours of each paragraph to simply write down which order they should come in (Address = red, Greeting = brown etc).

 

Are You Nuts?!: Using the boxing up grid for support (Are You Nuts PDF), can you have a go at writing a simple letter using the 5 sections. This time the letter is from Hayley LittlePig! She has built her house out of straw and is VERY pleased with herself because it was so easy. She has heard a strange noise, but doesn’t know what it is. I wonder what question she could ask her mum?
