This Week's Literacy

 

In Literacy, we are currently writing persuasive letters to a Roman General to persuade him to let us join the army.

Do some research on the Roman army here, or find your own web page to explore safely:

https://www.dkfindout.com/uk/history/ancient-rome/roman-army/

 

Task1 - Make a list of what you like about the Roman army and what you are good at (e.g. hunting, aiming, swimming)  These are things you can use in your letter.

Task 2 - Use the template below to p[an out your letter.  You can make your own copy.  Try to include as much detail as you can.

Task 3 - Write your letter carefully, making sure you reread every sentence to check it has perfect punctuation and that it makes sense.  Try reading your letter out loud to someone at home - would they allow you to join?

 

If you need some help remembering the key features of persuasive letters, try looking through these lessons below.
