There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom

Your first job this morning is to make your own list for Carla; what would you want to speak about with her? Take care to apply your learning about using 'a and an' correctly!


Read the persuasive letter below. What features of persuasion can you see the writing? Look out for:

  • A strong purpose for writing 
  • One sided opinions (biased)
  • Fronted adverbials to begin a new point
  • Flattery or an attempt to make the reader feel special
  • Emotive language.


You may want to print the letter and highlight each feature in a different colour. Alternatively, you could use sub-headings to list your features.
