Task- Informal letter

You have won a dream holiday in the magical world of Story Land. You will stay in the Gingerbread Cottage and Mrs Witch will be your hostess (see Fairy Tale Holiday letter) Too good to be true? Think about what your holiday will be like. Will Mrs Witch be welcoming? Why? Think about what it would really be like to stay with her (use the Holiday description sheet to generate ideas)

Write an informal letter to your friend, telling them all about your holiday. Use the Informal letter plan and letter example to help you.

  • a chatty, informal style
  • a conclusion- ask for a reply

Grammar Focus
