Persuasive letter writing

These resources support a set of lessons on purposeful persuasive letter writing (KS2). Based on research from writing Vlad and the First World War, they focus on Walter Tull and Phoebe Chapple. Both could have been awarded the Military Cross, but prevailing attitudes discriminated against them. The lessons support writing a letter to persuade the Ministry of Defence to award them posthumously.
