  • There are several resources for you to use as research:
  • Look at the example letter I have written in the folder and think about what grammatical techniques I have used:
    • Interesting vocabulary and punctuation.
    • A mix of sentence styles.
    • Passive voice
    • Emotions
    • Senses – sight, sound, smell, taste and touch.
  • Write your own letter home to your mother and include as much of the above as possible. If you like, you could write another letter from a contrasting point of view (if they had an awful time in the first letter, they could be really enjoying themselves in the second letter). Feel free to email the letters to me so I can see how your writing is getting on!
