Primary 4 have been learning how to write formal letters. After receiving a letter from an alien, we wrote an informative letter back telling Hamish the alien all about Aberdeen. We had to write in paragraphs and include lots of information about the things we liked to do. We loved writing about our favourite things to do in Aberdeen! Then, we had a visit from an actual alien called Henry! We had to learn how to write a persuasive letter because he wanted to go to Jupiter but we knew he would really love to live on Mars. We learned persuasive language, and OREO which is how we remember to structure our argument. We had to use facts about Mars, our opinions and think of why it might be good for Henry. We have almost finished our letters, and hope they will convince Henry to live on Mars!
