  • Useful as a starting point for layout with LA children, but not for anything at greater depth. Used it to recap structure after a close read. Used alongside Formal Letter Examples pdf

    • Hi beth0121,
      Thanks for your comment :)
      We are sorry that you're not happy with this resource - we would love to improve the PowerPoint for you. What additional content would you like to see in the PowerPoint?

  • You 'shall' should read 'you should'. 'Lastly was the watermelon' should read 'last was the watermelon'. Not a very well written letter, imo!

  • Nicely laid out PPT as usual, however on slide 5 it repeats the instructions on beginning a letter to someone you know rather than how to end one.

  • Looking at the example letter, I should have been very upset if one of my Year 6s had written it. Paragraphing?

  • Fab resource for letters unit in Y1. I adapted the letter to send to Y2 teachers to ask about life in the next class. Be useful to include examples of other kinds of letters such as informal and less formal such a thank you letter etc.

Guide your children in writing their very own formal letters using this handy powerpoint! Includes a helpful coloured diagram showing them how to lay out their letter, and step by step guidelines to get them going and help them structure their work.
