Year 6 | Persuasive Writing: Planning and Writing a Letter Worksheets

In these Year 6 persuasive writing: planning and writing a letter worksheets, children immerse themselves in a role-playing scenario as they tackle the task of crafting a letter of application to a prospective employer. Their goal is to persuade the employer as to why they should be selected for a job interview. The process commences with learners planning their job application within the provided writing frame, which includes essential segments such as an opening paragraph, second paragraph, third paragraph, closing paragraph, persuasive techniques, and a checklist for ensuring the inclusion of necessary features. Subsequently, utilising their prepared writing frame, pupils proceed to compose their persuasive letter to the employer.

This worksheet serves as a valuable tool for reinforcing children’s understanding of letter writing and persuasive techniques garnered from previous years and lessons. Additionally, it provides learners with a practical application of persuasive writing in a real-world context, illustrating its relevance in professional communication such as job applications.

Our Year 6 writing composition worksheets are aligned with the KS2 primary national curriculum and will support your learning activities, differentiation, homework and lesson plans.
