We have been learning how to write persuasive letters over the last few weeks. Having completed your final piece, persuading the the King or Judge to punish or release The Highwayman, we would like you to use the skills you have learnt for a completely different task.
Using all of the techniques that you have practiced, write a letter to your teacher, persuading them that you should be allowed to finish school early on the last day of term. Use emotive language, formal language and sentence starters to link your ideas.
If you are convincing enough, you might convince us to let you go!
