Letter Writing

By Mark Warner
Age Range: 5 to 11

Writing letters gives children experience of writing for different purposes, and for different audiences. It is also very enjoyable, especially when the children receive replies to their letters.

Letter should be set out in a certain way so that the reader of the letter can easily understand it. They are normally set out in the following way:

Your Name,
Your House Number and Road Name,
Your Town,
Your County.
Your Postcode

Today's Date

Dear ___________,

Write what you want to say in the space here. Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah.

Yours / Best Wishes / Love / Your faithfully / Yours sincerely,

Your Name

P.S. If you want to add something else at the bottom, put P.S. at the start of it.

When the children are familiar with the correct layout of letter, they can begin writing to others. There are many sites on the internet who will connect schools.
