Can you spot any of the features?  Next, look at the letter Mrs Weaving has written.  Mrs Weaving needs some help to make her letter better.  What has she forgotten to include?  What can you change to improve her writing?  Would using different time words at the start of the sentences make it sound better?  Could you add some more detail to make this piece of work more exciting to read?




Over the next two days, work through the rest of Mrs Weaving's letter. Correct and improve each one.
