These are letters to friends and relations, or people you know well. Include telephone number and email if available Greeting — There are several variations that can be used depending on how well you know the person: Dear Mary, Hi Mary, Greetings Complimentary close — short comment, for example Love, Lots of love, With thanks, See you soon Typical layout of an informal letter Tips for writing good letters Make sure that they are well written.
It can be very annoying for someone to have to struggle to read handwriting. Always use your best and clearest handwriting. Make sure all your contact details are clearly written down at the top of the letter. If they are not, then you might not get a reply.
The correct address is essential.
Think about what you want to say. If necessary make some notes on a separate sheet of paper first. This will ensure that you do not forget anything. Think about to whom you are writing the letter. Use the right style of writing and language — formal or informal, business like or friendly.
Lay out your letter using paragraphs. This makes it easier for the reader. Letter of enquiry and letters providing information Suitable for KS2 school use These are formal letters and messages need to be precise and detailed, covering all the required information.
Two types of letters can be undertaken — a letter requesting information; and a reply providing it. Out in the Milky Way, there is an alien curious about Earth. He writes a letter asking for information about liquids and gases. These do not exist on his planet and he finds it hard to understand what they are.
Write a letter explaining what liquids and gases are. How do they work? What examples could be included? What would be confusing about them? This would link into the KS2 science curriculum and could act as a revision exercise giving an opportunity for a discussion about gases and liquids.
The following day, give the children a thank you letter from the alien! You could link up with another class in the school. One class could write letters of enquiry. These would be delivered to the second class for answering. They make a good follow up exercise after receiving presents or going on a visit.
Your class has just been out on a school visit to a farm. Write a thank you letter to the farmer. You will need to say thank you and how much you enjoyed the visit.
Give some examples of what you enjoyed best about the day? Was it feeding the lambs? Seeing the young animals? Receiving a hand written letter asking you to a party or a special event makes you feel very special. Discuss what type of event might create a need to write letters of invitation. There are plenty of examples — birthday parties, Christmas parties, a visit to a beach with friends; going out to a farm or to the cinema, a wedding or when a new baby is christened; or simply inviting a friend to stay overnight at your house.
Choose a special event and write a letter inviting a friend. What do you need to include in the letter so that they have all the necessary information? You need to be clear on the date and the time, as well as the location. Your friend would be very upset if he or she went to the wrong place.
