Writing a formal letter for a job application. 1-9 GCSE letter. Writing skills A05 and A06.
A full lesson (recently observed as 'Outstanding') which depicts how to write a formal letter applying for a job. Based on the Edexcel's English Language (Paper 2) imaginative writing task.

A fast-paced, pupil-led lesson with varied activities and integrated (graded) peer assessment. Worksheets are provided for differentiation of the task and a full lesson plan shows details of all activities (although the PPT is very straightforward anyway).
