Key Stage 1
This half term we are learning all about persuasive language by writing some invitations. The children have blown us away with their powerful persuasive skills! In order to help embed all the tools and techniques they have acquired we would like them to write an invitation to someone asking them to come to their dream party. They can write to anyone they want – their family, friends, their favourite celebrity even! Encourage the children to use language that will appeal to the reader to get them really excited about the party. The more creative the better!
Examples that you can use:
Start your letter correctly: Dear
Key words that you can use: Please, come, party, because, love, from
Adjectives (to describe) super, fantastic, amazing, wonderful
Verbs (what they will do) You have to, You will, You really should, You can eat, You can play….
Conjunctions (connectives) There will be lots of scrumptious food to eat and loads of games to play!
Punctuation (Capital Letters, Full Stops and Finger Spaces)
Superlatives (Words ending in ‘est’ – like greatest or biggest)
You can decorate it if you so wish!
We look forward to hearing about your fantastic parties!
