Welcome to week 2 of your Year 4 Literacy Home Learning!


This week, we are writing a letter as a Roman soldier who is currently away from home fighting in the army. You can write to any member of his household - just remember to check your punctuation regularly throughout for those pesky capital letters!


Using the good version, the resources below and any other research you have carried out, write your own version of the letter, ensuring you focus on: including all of the features of a letter, the soldier's feelings and why he might feel this way, what his duties are within the army and how his life might have drastically changed from what he would have been doing at home and what you might want to say to the family member you are writing to.


The PowerPoint will talk you through how to plan, write and edit your writing each day. There are screenshots included of the paragraph that you are aiming to write each day.

When the 'whiteboards' are mentioned, if you have your own whiteboard - great! If not, use any paper you have :). 

If you work in a group with an adult (Mrs Townley, Mrs Baker or Miss Brown), use these to help you!
