Today we are going to be looking at how language, presentation and structure contribute to meaning. We are going to be focusing on a formal letter.

Step 1

Look at the poster below. This shows the structure of a formal letter. A formal letter begins with 'Dear Sir/Madam or the name of the recipient. The letter ends with 'Yours sincerely or faithfully'.


Read the letter below. What is the letter trying to persuade the reader to do?


As you read, can you identify any of the features in the formal letter?


Complete the question below about the letter. 

If you are at home, write the date and LC in your blended learning book.


When finished, send a picture of your work to your teacher on SEESAW!
