Aimed at KS2, this lesson is a bit of Christmas fun on persuasive writing. Although your class may no longer believe in Santa, they can still remember writing to him as younger children! This powerpoint encourages children to write a persuasive letter to Santa, in an effort to convince him to get them the presents they want this year. It discusses how to write a persuasive letter in detail, and allows pupils to consider points to raise in their own letters. The powerpoint also reviews letter writing structure.

    A fantastic resource which tied into my previous session seemlessly and acted as an effective link into my next topic in a way that was engaging and seasonally appropriate.
    A couple of typo's and I edited the letter layout to include Santa's address but all in all a very good resource that I was glad to have stumbled upon. Thank you.
