Persuasive Letter Writing Year 5Quick View

Persuasive Letter Writing Year 5

This is a weeks plan based on writing a persuasive letter. First of all, it involves teaching children the different persuasive tricks such as flattery, rhetorical questions, repetition, exaggeration etc. These lessons also involve children orally trying to persuade each other, or their class teacher by using the above techniques. Children enjoyed persuading alot. These lessons also touch on letter writing (formal) and ensure that children use the correct structure and tone depending on who they are writing to. We happened to be learning about Ancient Greece at the time, so the letter in which is used as a model, is connected to Ancient Greece. *UPDATED* This resource has become increasingly more popular, so I have decided to update it by adding extra scaffolding and a lower ability version of the letter as a model. Please leave a review in what you liked/disliked/needs improving and I'll happily alter the resource.

Persuasive letter writing example

I couldn't find a text on line which provided the example of what I was looking for in a model persuasive letter. So I wrote one (and wish that i had done earlier as it was quicker) This is a letter to the head teacher which tries to persuade them to get rid of school uniform. It can be used as a model text to look at with the children to identify features and language. It could be used a starting letter to be up-leveled and improved We used it as the 'Imitate' text at the beginning of a T4W cycle Hope you find it useful and it saves you some time.

Writing a formal letter of complaint

A resource that I used with my Year 8 class. It involves watching a clip of 'Holidays from Hell' and then improving an informal letter of complaint. They are encouraged to create their own success criteria but are then given a more challenging one with a focus on use of grammar and punctuation for effect. They really enjoyed it! Feedback welcome!
