We will be identifying the:

  • Sender’s address

  • Conclusion
  • Sign off


Can you spot any of these in the example letters?

  • Capital letters
  • Full stop .
  • Question mark ?
  • Exclamation mark !
  • and
  • because
  • adjectives (describing words)
  • Un prefix (e.g. unkind, unfair, ungrateful, unhappy)
  • s / es for plurals


We will have a go at planning our own letter to Santa.
