Teamwork - Respect - Aim High
Week 5 is the time to write your persuasive letter to the engineers that will judge your entry!
Take a look at the tasks below and follow them to make sure you get your best letter written to convince the engineers that your idea is THE BEST and should be made into a prototype.
Task 1 - Look at examples of persuasive letters (included below)
What is persuasion?
Task 2 - Plan your letter
Think about your idea and talk through these questions with somebody in your house.
Now jot these ideas as notes into the planning template below. In the right hand column add some powerful language that will help persuade the engineers. Look at the persuasive word bank to help you with this.
Task 3 - Write a draft of your letter and edit it
Now have a go at writing a draft of your letter. Remember to…
When you have finished your draft, proof-read it for spelling and punctuation. Then check again that it makes sense and you are happy with the language that you have used.
Your letter must fit on one side of A4 and must use at least 100 words.
Task 4 - Publish a neat copy of your letter
Now it’s time to write out your letter neatly and accurately, ready to send to the engineers.
Lay out your letter carefully and accurately...
Dear Engineers at the start
Yours sincerely at the end before you add your FIRST name only
Please do not put any address at the top as we usually would on letters, as you may not have enough space. Remember your letter must fit on one side of A4 and must use at least 100 words.
When you have finished, please take a photo of your letter and send it to your class email address, so that we can send it off for you. Make sure you have also sent in your neat copy of your labelled picture of your idea with your first name and year group on it.
