Persuasive Letter Writing- Time to Shine!

How Can I Reduce Plastic Pollution? | Sport Diver

The children in Year 3 have been working really hard over the last few weeks to plan, draft, edit and write up their powerful, persuasive letters, which are about our plastic pollution problem. They have worked really hard to consider the purpose; the audience; the structure of a letter; and include the features of persuasion (personal pronouns, exaggeration, rhetorical questions, statistics, alliteration, emotive language and the rule of 3) in their writing.

The purpose of writing should never just be to end up in their English books, so the children have written their letter up onto lined paper and put this into an envelope. The children will have this original copy with them in their book bags. I have encouraged the children to post these letters at home -with your permission of course- and look forward to hearing about any responses they receive. Please check you are happy to include your address, the school’s name and your child’s name within the letter before you decide to post it. If you are not happy to include the above, you may like to cut parts of the letter off, stick something over the top or use the school’s address instead of a personal one. Please do not feel obliged to post this letter should you not wish to.
