Writing to Advise

'Writing to Advise' worksheet

Key stage:  KS 3

Curriculum topic:   Writing

Curriculum subtopic:   Consider Purpose of Own Writing

Difficulty level:  

Worksheet Overview

When we write to advise we need to use friendly language which suggests ideas rather than tells people what to so. For example, saying 'You might...' or 'You can...' sounds better than saying 'You must...' or 'You should...'. 


You can also use rhetorical questions such as 'Why not try.....?' Or make statements which remind the reader that they are not alone, such as: 'Some people find it helpful to...' 


As with all writing tasks, remember to use full sentences, divide your work into paragraphs and add as much detail as you can to expand your point and ideas.


Try to spend 45 minutes on this task.
