I am writing to you because I think holidays are necessary and that they should stay. If children and teachers work for most of the year they would get stressed because their brains would be too full of knowledge, don't you agree?
My first opinion is that if you have families in other countries you would never be able to visit them because some countries are too far away for you to travel in just a weekend. Surely if you had family in another country you like to visit them, am I right?
Secondly, I think we need holidays too let our tiny brains have a rest from learning. If they didn't students might get really stressed because they have missed out on a longer holiday.
Last but not least, I think we should have holidays because if you were going away for a while you wouldn't be able to stay long. If it was far away you would want to stay for a few days but as soon as you got there you would have to to pack up and go back home.
I hope I have persuaded you to keep the 2 weeks holidays going for our school!!!!
WALT: Write a letter to persuade Mrs Plowright to keep school holidays
I found it difficult fo think if three ideas to write for the reasons of why we should keep school holidays.
I found it easy to think of some persuasive words to add to my letter.
