Friday 1st May (pinch punch first of the month..)
I can't believe we are in May! Time flies by quickly at the moment.
This week I wrote a diary pretending to be Stanley. When I wrote the diary, I wrote quite informally.
We have talked a lot about levels of formality this year. Can you remember what the difference is?
Take a look at the power point attached then try this activity below:
Your task is to have a conversation with a family member. Try to have a conversation in a very formal manner about something silly - perhaps about breakfast cereal or favourite TV programme.
Repeat the conversation in an informal manner. Think about the words you are using. How are you altering your speech?
Let me know what you chatted about and which was easier to do. Enjoy and have fun.
