LO: To read as a writer

Follow the document to examine the breakdown of the text, when reading as a writer we are looking for features of the text that help us break it down and clarify the structure. Use your knowledge from your icons and actions to help you as you check over the piece of writing.

There are 3 challenges for you to choose from once you’re certain of the paragraph breakdown, if you choose H&S you must also try one other challenge (though this can just be planning and not completing one of the other challenges)!

You can use the address already provided for the letter, or make up your own, remember, it’s a return address, so it depends on who you’re pretending to be!

Use the outline to guide you, each of your paragraphs should be arranged as the model is.


Have fun!
