During the final week of home learning, year 2 looked at a letter Nelson wrote to his father while on his expedition of the arctic.
We started by analysing the letter, detecting the different elements that we thought were important. We identified lots of different essentials including the addresses, date, greeting, and closing.
Upon finding these key features, we highlighted them to ensure that we would remember to include them in our own letters. Towards the end of the week, we had the chance to write our own letters. We imagined we were Nelson’s father responding to the initial letter that we have been looking at.
Excellent job year 2, we can’t wait to see you next week!
