L.O: To write the main part of my letter.

 

Today we are going to write the third and fourth paragraph of our letter.

These two paragraphs copy the same model as yesterday’s paragraph, the only difference is they will be on a different threat to the ocean.

 

Paragraph 3

Discussing ocean threat 2

What is the issue? How is it harming our oceans? Include shocking facts which support your idea. What should we be doing? Rhetorical question.

Paragraph 4

Discussing ocean threat 3

What is the issue? How is it harming our oceans? Include shocking facts which support your idea. What should we be doing? Rhetorical question.

  3. Include facts which support and prove that you are correct.

  5. Add a rhetorical question to get the Government thinking.
