Look at this example to help you.

Here are todays activity sheets.

Today I would like you to use your plan, that you did yesterday and write your very own letter to the corona virus persuading it to go away.

Think about all the reasons we said yesterday in our meet about how bad it is and then use these arguments to be as persuasive as possible.

Remember to include the features of persuasive writing we looked at.

  • Imperative verbs
  • Adjectives – rich description
  • Conjunctions- To extend our sentences
  • Rhetorical questions.

Then make sure you formal letter is laid out correctly.

  • The senders address is put at the top right hand side
  • The address of the person receiving the letter goes on the left hand side below the sender’s address. (make this up)
  • The date
  • Greeting — Dear Sir or Madam. You can use the titles Miss, Mrs. or Mr. if you know the name of the person to whom you are writing
  • The main text or message
  • Close — Yours faithfully or Yours sincerely
