The Journey to a C Grade
Form (What are you writing?)
Language (How are you going to write it?)
Audience (Who are you writing for?)
Purpose (Why are you writing?)
Before you tackle a task FLAP it!!
Imagine you have a friend or relative
who has decided to run in the
London Marathon (a distance of
over twenty-six miles).
Write a letter to your friend or
relative giving your opinions.
I think that you should run the London maraton because its a realy good thing to do. It will mean that you raise a lot of money for charity and you will keep fit and you might even be on tv so isnt that great. It will be a good thing to do.
Another reason why you should run the maraton is becose it will be a massive achievement and a good thing to do. You could tell people what a great thing it is youve done. People would be so impressed.
The London Marathon is an annual event which people from all over the world partake in. I think that it would be an amazing opportunity for you to run in next year's marathon.
Firstly, I think that it'd be fantastic due to all the charity work that you could delve into. The marathon requires you to raise a set amount of money for a charity of your choice in order to run and therefore, as well as having the benefits of self achievement, you could be changing someone's life by raising a large amount of money for charity. Last year, a friend of mine, Roger ran the full 26 or so miles, raising over £2500 for the charity, Children with Cancer. What an achievement! Would you not like to feel as though you've made a difference to someone's life?
Secondly, the London Marathon is one of the largest events that takes place in our capital city. Over 100,000 people ran last year, with millions of pounds being raised. 97% of those people who took part said that it was the biggest achievement of their life! They described it as: amazing; life changing; and inspiring!
Would you not like to be having the same experience? I know I would!
I hope that I have helped you make a decision that could be one of the pinnacles of your life!
Take care of yourself and speak to you soon,
