The focus for letter writing this week in P2-4 was to write a letter of invite, applying the skills of letter layout, structure and handwriting. Pupils decided to invite some community members to the school for afternoon tea on the last day of term to share their experiences of school life when they were young.
Pupils in P4-7 were focusing their letter writing on writing a letter of complaint and how to get points across clearly and politely through the medium of formal letter writing. They decided to their MSP, Kate Forbes to complain about the lack of 24/7 nursing care on Raasay, the need for re-surfacing of the roads and the lack of street lighting in some areas. They also invited Kate Forbes to the school to discuss their concerns.
The photos below show the pupils posting their letters in torrential rain and strong wind – making sure that they definitely reached their intended recipients!
