In Writing we have been learning to: Write a formal letter.
We have followed the writing process and have planned and drafted a formal letter.
Here is a link to our online Modelling book.
This shows the process that we have followed.
Here is the letter that I have written ( Link the draft of your letter here)
Here is my reflection on the letter writing that we have done.
One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was writing the letter
My next step is: look for more opportunities to put my letter writing knowledge into practice in the future.

I can apply a set of criteria to evaluate how successfully the author has achieved their purpose in a range of different text types.
- Select 6 different texts from slides 7 and 8 of the modelling book.
- Make sure that you read a variety from the 3 main text types ( Persuasive, Informative and Entertaining)
- Evaluate each text, filling out the table below to show your thinking.
- See the modelling book for info on these criteria.
Quality of information/ Language
Overall how well has the author achieved their purpose.
The three little pigs. The purpose of this text is to entertain the reader.
The story was easy to read and simple to understand. The pictures were bright and colourful and added value to the story. They backed up what was written in the story. The words were simple and easy. The rhyming parts helpe the story to flow
As this was narrative text it is accuracy of information is not important.
The story was the same as Three Little Pig stories I have read before however.
The content of the story was relevant to purpose.
There was plenty of detail in the story to help me get a good image in my mind of what was going on.
Clever use was made of repetition and rhyme.
