To whom it may concern - Letter Writing

 

Hello Again Year 3,

 

I was very impressed to see all of your fantastic work on the features of letters from the last week. I am very proud of all your hard work, it has been amazing to look at and read through!

 

This week we are going to be continuing our work on letter writing.

 

As you will all know, you will be moving into Year 4 in September and will be having a new teacher. I thought it would be a great idea for you all to introduce yourselves to your new teacher by writing them a letter to tell them a little bit about yourselves.

 

However, if you are not sure that this is for you, you could always write a letter to me or Miss Turner to explain your favourite memory or moment from Year 3.

 

If you are feeling really confident you could always write both letters at the end of this mini-project and really showcase your skills!

 

I am really looking forward to seeing all of the fantastic work I am sure you are going to produce over the next couple of weeks.

 

Last week, we looked at the different features we might find in a letter. This week we are going to apply all our knowledge of letter writing to be able to write a letter of our own.

 

All the best and good luck,

 

Mr Lambrou

Why is letter writing important?

 

Letter writing is an important skill to learn as it can help to improve your communication, social and handwriting skills.

 

Writing and receiving letters is a fun way to communicate with your friends, family or even your teachers as it gives you the opportunity to think about what you want to say and provides you with the opportunity to complete your task at your own pace.

 

Letters are a more personal way of greeting or sending information to a friend as you have to take the time to think about what you are wanting to say and how you want to present your work.

 

Hopefully over the next 2 weeks, we will all discover how much fun and expressive letter writing can be.

Monday & Tuesday - WALT: plan a letter to include an introduction, paragraphs, a conclusion and a complimentary close

 

Over the next couple of days I would like you to complete the planning phase of your letter writing. 

 

You can choose to either:

 

  1. Plan a letter to explain your favourite moments in Year 3 or 
  2. Plan a letter to introduce yourself to your new teacher!

 

If you are feeling particularly confident, why don't you try and plan both letters?

 

Remember that within your work you should include: 

 

  1. The sender's (my own) address - Please do not include your own address, use the schools address instead!
  2. The date that my letter was written on
  3. An appropriate greeting
  4. An introduction
  5. Chatty, informal expressions and style throughout my letter
  6. A conclusion
  7. A complimentary close
  8. The sender's (my own) name or signature
