WORLD WAR 1 FACTS | SUMMARY OF WW1 FOR KIDS

For today's activity, I want you to write a reply from Millie to Bertie, including what you think her opinion would be about whether or not he should go. As they are good friends, it is an informal letter. Make sure that you use evidence from the text and what you know about both characters when writing it. Please ensure that you use correct punctuation and the Year 4 writing objectives - conjunctions, fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases and the present/past perfect tense.
