Activity 2

This activity focuses on letter writing.  Can you remember the features of a letter? 

You need to include;

  •  your address on the right hand side
  • Dear ....
  •  start with an introduction - why are you writing the letter?
  • add details, maybe ask some questions
  •  end with a friendly statement
  • From … See you soon....
  •  name at the bottom


Now re-watch the Christopher Columbus video from 'Activity 1'.  Can you pretend you are Christopher and write a letter to the King of Spain?  In your letter explain what you want to do and why.


You can use paper and photograph your letter to send to us or use the 2Do on Purple Mash.
