  • Persuasive language.
  • Rhetorical questions. 
  • Clear points, one made per paragraph. 
  • Opening points with time adverbials (Firstly, secondly, finally) that are punctuated with a comma at the end. 

 

Today you are going to write your persuasive letter to the Emperor, look through your main points from yesterday and write a paragraph for each point. Remember to use your time adverbials and rhetorical questions if you can.

Remember:

  • a time adverbial is firstly, secondly, thirdly, finally.
