To write a simple personal letter

Activity 1:

To write a simple personal letter

[lo 4.2.1]

We continue to focus on writing in this activity, but now you are going to write a letter to a friend. You are going to imagine that you were staying in the Royal Hotel on holiday when a fire broke out and the hotel burnt down. In your letter you are going to describe the following to your friend:

  1. what you were doing before the fire;
  2. how you became aware that the fire had broken out;
  3. how you were rescued from the burning building.

Look at the picture carefully to get some inspiration!

Write your letter. Remember to include your address at the top of the letter and to write in paragraphs.

Assessment

LO 4
WRITING The learner will be able to write different kinds of factual and imaginative texts for a wide range of purposes.
We know this when the learner:
4.1 writes to communicate information:
4.1.4 expresses an opinion and gives reasons for it;
4.2 writes for social purposes:
4.2.1 with a ‘frame’, writes a simple personal letter;
4.3 writes creatively:
4.3.1 shows development in the ability to write stories, play scripts and dialogues.

Memorandum

This activity focuses on writing. Learners are required to write a letter to a friend. Start by revising the layout for the letter. Remind learners about including their address on the right hand side of the page, the date, writing in paragraphs etc. Learners have to imagine that the hotel they were staying in, burnt down. The have to describe the events to their friend in the letter. Study the picture, which is included in the workbook, with the class. This picture is meant to inspire them and set the scene. Talk about how people would feel, and about different possibilities for the way that the fire started and the ways that people were rescued. Learners have a block to brainstorm in, and then they must write the letter in the correct format in the ‘final copy’ block.

Remind them to check their spelling and punctuation, and to be creative. Read through the Educator’s Assessment Chart to complete your assessment.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
