Thank You Letter

Today we are going to write our first draft. I have included the checklist of the features of formal letter writing, so that you can include these in your letter. When writing, please use your plan to help you write in paragraphs. Good luck and remember it is only a first draft.


Once you have written your letter, please go back and read it. I find reading aloud helps. You need to check for missing capital letters, spellings and punctuation.

Explaining Skills

  • Explain how Philip Pullman makes it seem impossible that Lalchand and Chulak can win?
  • Explain how Philip Pullman builds tension before Lila and Lalchand light their fireworks.

English - Spelling

I have created a dictation for you. Can you remember the point system?

  • One point for every word you spell correctly.
  • One point for any correct punctuation and that includes capital letters.
  • One bonus point  for each focus word you spell correctly.
  • There is one word that I have highlighted green. After the dictation, can you explain why you did not include an apostrophe? I would create a special prize for getting this correct.
