WALT: identify features of a letter.

How do we communicate with other people? ( talk, phone, email, letters, etc.) This week we are going to be focussing on letter writing.  What is the purpose of writing letters?/Why do we write letters? Discuss the difference between letters and emails and make some notes on your page. Why do people still write letters when email is quicker and cheaper? 

All letters have a similar format.  Do you know what all letters need?  Have a look at the example letters (you don’t have to print them off).  Can you see what they all have in common?  I hope you found they all have an address, a date, who it is to and from and paragraphs. 

What are paragraphs?  Watch:  Writing a letter - Year 3 - P4 - English - Catch Up Lessons - Home Learning with BBC Bitesize - BBC Bitesize  (paragraphs- the first video).
