LO: I understand and can order features of a letter

This week we are going to find out more about what it is like to do different jobs and why people do them.  To do this we are going to write letters to people to find out more about how and why they got into the jobs that they do.

We do this we need to know how to write letters.  Please watch the powerpoints and look out for these features:

  • address of sender
  • date
  • Dear
  • introduction using  - I am writing to ...
  • more detail in paragraphs
  • Yours faithfully at the end 

Challenge:  download the letter.  Someone has mixed up the order of this letter.  Can you re-write the letter in the correct order.  Alternatively you could number the order that the features should appear in or cut and stick them in the correct order. 

Reading:  please continue reading your own books at home or choose some from Oxford Owls.  Are you reading a fiction or non-fiction book?  What features does the book have that you are currently reading?  Can you tell someone at home the different features you will see in a fiction and non-fiction book?
