This week we are starting a new unit on letter writing.

You have 3 tasks to complete.


Task 1- Cold task- write a letter to your class teacher persuading them to get a dog.


Task 2- To look at the 3 letters and then answer the questions based on the letters. Think about how a letter has a different layout to other pieces of text we have looked at in year 4.


Task 3- Short burst writing- spine poetry. Looking at the picture of the jail cell. Think of nouns, adjectives and verbs to go with the picture. Then write a setting description using your ideas.
