Week beginning 11/01/21
Monday 11th January - Today I would like you to read through the letter checklist below, I would then like you to make notes in your book of examples of these different features that you can find in the Egypt letter. Can you find examples of all of the different features?
Tuesday 12th January - today we are going to be looking at rhetorical questions. Read through the powerpoint and then have a go at writing out the statements in your book, turning them into rhetorical questions. See Miss Mabbott's example below to help you! You can also use the rhetorical question starters to help!
Miss Mabbott's example: You should go to Egypt. = Why don't you take a trip to Egypt?
Wednesday 13th January's mission - today we are going to be exploring time adverbials, as these are another feature found in letters. I would like you to watch the video below and then read through the events from Chapter 2 + 3 of our class text. Then you need to write out the events from Chapters 2 + 3 in order, using a time adverbial at the start of each one. There is a wordbank on the pdf to help but you might think of more time conjunctions.
Friday 15th January - today I would like you to begin writing your letter, imagining that you are Flat Stanley. You only need to do the address, date, greeting, introduction and the first paragraph today. We will complete the rest on Monday! Please see Miss Mabbott's example below to help you get started! Remember to use your plan to help you and not to copy my ideas as they are boring and yours are so much better!
Remember to write in paragraphs, use joined up writing, capital letters and full stops, emotive language (feelings), rhetorical questions and commas.
