GCSE English Non-Fiction Writing Models

Four non-fiction model writing responses that I created to help students prepare for the non-fiction writing section of GCSE English Language. The models are as follows:

  1. A persusasive letter from a teacher to the school Principal about changes to the school canteen (398 words - suitable for middle or lower ability groups).
  2. A letter to a friend who is coming to stay describing the things they can see and do in the area. This is a hybrid of letter writing and travel writing, combining the skills of writing to describe, explain and inform (945 words - this is a lengthy, high level response suitable for middle or higher ability groups).
  3. A travel-writing article about Isafjordur in Iceland (452 words - suitable for a range of groups).
  4. A stop-smoking leaflet, aimed at persuading teenagers to quit smoking (381 words - suitable for a range of groups).

Any questions, just ask!
