El-dorado lesson 10
In today's video author Helen Peters talks about some of her books - historical novels - and the importance of letters within them. The task set is to write a letter about how you're getting on in lockdown. I would suggest that you think of an older relative who would really appreciate receiving a handwritten letter from you that they could keep.

El-dorado lesson 6
In today's video you are asked to generate ideas for a letter using the format below.
|Who are you and what are you about?||Why are you writing to the group?||What is your proposal?|
You need to decide who is writing the letter to the agency / group and why.
My idea would centre around William Shakespeare and a lost manuscript - a book that has never been published. The person writing my letter would be a relative of Shakespeare's and they would be writing to the agency because they've just found out that one of the members is a cousin of theirs and therefore also related to Shakespeare. The proposal would be to travel to Stratford-Upon-Avon, find Shakespeare's former home and search for the manuscript, which would be very valuable if found.
Have a go at writing your own ideas, using the above table to help you structure your ideas.
