Morning Challenge



Today we are going to look at an example of an informal letter.

What do you think the difference is between an informal letter and a formal letter?


There is a PDF attached which has a copy of the letter.

There is also the example text that shows you the different features. Look at the first document and see if you can find features listed such as sender's address, date, greeting etc.


Then once you have looked at the letter and possible features, then look at the example.

The first example are the basic features then page 3 and 4 contain more detailed grammar, punctuation and spelling features.


In your blue book, write a list of features you would expect to find in an informal letter.



Today we will be looking at factor pairs.


What are factors?

Factors are numbers that divide exactly into another number.

For example, the factors of 8 are:

1, 2, 4, 8

Factors can be shown in pairs. Each pair multiplies to make 8.

The factor pairs of 8 can be shown:

1 x 8 = 8

2 x 4 = 8


Look at the video on the link below and the PDF to find out a little more about factor pairs then complete the activity.

If you would like to complete further work on factor pairs, then choose one of the activities below.


Start with watching the video of a first hand account of an evacuee's adventure. This is a primary source.

Next work through the Powerpoint about evacuees in WW2. This is a secondary source.

Play the evacuee game either by printing it off or making a list of the items. What would be the essentials to pack for an evacuee's time away from home?
