Grade 7 - English - Email Writing / WorksheetCloud Online Lesson

19.Jul.2021

welcome great servants back to work she
clan into English my name is mrs. voce
as you know and we are going to jump
straight into our lesson today with our
lesson overview so we're going to be
looking today obviously we have our
daily started which we always do so you
need your pen and paper if you haven't
got it so quickly pause and go fetch it
and then we're going to look at email
writing identifying the five main parts
of a letter or email we're going to
compare and contrast the format of a
letter to that of an email we're going
to look at some do's and don'ts when
writing an email and we may proofread a
draft of an email if it's my tongue
please just remember that obviously you
are more than welcome to send me an
email at grade 7 at worksheet cloud comm
the reason I thought we do emails today
is because I really want to make sure
that whether you sending me an email or
you sending one to your teacher while
you're aware and we in lockdown you
really do know the correct way of doing
it so let's jump into our daily starter
once you define the root word for each
word below we've already done that in a
previous lesson prefixes root words and
suffixes so pause the video and just
write down the root word of the
following words bravest singer and do
tina's absents hopping lovely replay
invention and untied and when you come
back we'll go to it together but let's
see how you did some of them were quite
easy so the root word of brave bravest
is brave singer visual ER your suffix
Rudra is sing and do the prefixes and
we've put the base the base or root with
us to clean us we added on e.r.s for
your suffix and so the root word is
clean
absent we've put on app and your root
word or base with its seeds popping your
root word or base with is hop and
remember when we adding on our suffix
because of the one syllable remember one
one one rule one syllable and the one
consonant
double the last constant add ing and
then we've got lovely the route where is
love replay visual suffix there I mean
your prefix sorry we hope you try this
play invention there's your suffix
Russian and the root word is invade and
then outside and I know lots of children
get this one confused there is the unnie
and there's the tire mm MIDI is your
Suffolk so it's just tired
it's not tired right great let's get a
start on our email definition so I hope
most of you know that the e in email
sends for electronic so the electronic
mail that sends with the internet and
what I want you to do is if you think
about a letter and an email there are
differences what are they so what I want
you to do is I want you to compare them
and contrast them so if you're not sure
what compare and contrast that's a very
important thing is to notice the
difference between the two when you
compare you're trying to find things
that are the same and when you contrast
we're trying to find things let's show
that there's a difference or the
opposite so you can either use a double
bubble map you've ever used one of these
you can see there's emails on the left
letters on the right the three that are
joined to the letters and the email that
is Burke the comparing that's the ones
that are the same and then obviously
emails these three on the side that just
belong to email and three that just
belong to laters so that's how you do a
double bubble net if you want to just do
a Venn diagram they very well know you
can have a circle in the middle which
means what is the same for emails and
letters and then on one side you'll just
have emails and one thing just to do
with letters or you can just do columns
emails letters and what is the same so
just take a minute or two pause the
video and you write down as many things
that you can about what what emails have
in them or what they're about and what
letters are about and then finding that
they have which are similar to each
other so pause the video and then we'll
come back and go through it together
right let's see how you did I used a
double bubble map I already do like them
so for emails and I said it's digital is
received through the internet it can be
deleted and it's received quite quickly
for letters they're on paper so they're
not digital they seem to be the post
normally they cannot be deleted yes you
could tear them up but you can't delete
them and then it's quite a slow delivery
or much slower than it would be if it
was an email and then things that are
the same but can they both can be used
to communicate with people they're
written by people and they can either be
formal or informal they obviously are
others that we could have used to
compare and contrast I hope you found
some good ways and obviously if we were
in class it would be so awesome to do
this on the board together as a class
and to get everybody's ideas and to add
to this diagram but we can't but you're
just a little um an idea of the
difference so let's jump into actually
looking at an email and later this is
your classic just a very short one beta
it's obviously quite brief you'd
normally have a lot more paragraphs in a
letter so you normally would have your
address on the right-hand side you'd
have your greeting whoever you writing
to with a comma you'd have your message
your main body of your message you would
have maybe two or three paragraphs and
then you will end with a closing like
from and the person's name if we're
doing an email you can see instead of
the addressed
we've actually got an email address and
since the email address of who's writing
and then who is it going to and then
what's different is whilst you've got
the date there with the address there is
the data but it also has the time and
then normally a letter doesn't have a
subject but as an email does what is the
subject about playdates and then you'd
still have the same thing so you'd have
your greeting you'd have your main
message the body of your email closing
who's it from warm regards and then most
of the person's name so they don't very
brief overview we now
going to go into an actual email
step-by-step of how to go about it so
these are the dudes of when writing an
email you do have to have the correct
email address for the person you're
writing to obviously if you don't have
the correct email address is not going
to get to the person it'll normally
normally tell you that it's undelivered
and number two so that would be where
you type in the email address for the
new message your subject you have to
have a meaningful and apt subject line
and you normally use all capital letters
and what I mean by that is the start of
each word gets a capital letter now the
reason we have a subject for an email is
people don't want to waste their time
way you know wading through a whole lot
of emails you have to also be clear what
are you writing about so for example if
you were writing a question to me you
might say worksheet cloud poetry lesson
question then immediately I know it's
bug poetry can you imagine how many
emails I am getting for on grade 6 grade
7 glad you both of them at worksheet are
calm and sometimes it just is questions
is it a question about prefixes and
suffixes and root words is it about
poetry is it about a comprehension is it
about
figurative language or emotive language
so really you need to make sure that
your subject is very clear and specific
so it must be meaningful if you are
writing to your gran to check on her you
might say check on or check up on Grande
so that you know it's just a checkup or
sending love to ground what is your
subject going to be make sure that you
are specific and then especially if it's
urgent you might even write the urgent
please read so let's take a look at the
next part so greeting you normally start
your email if you'd normally do need to
start it formally okay if you know the
person well you can just do the
following yeah Mary so if it's a friend
or a family member if you don't know the
person or they older than you and you
want to be a little bit more formal and
respectful you'd obviously write dear
mr. or mrs. Adams for example so take a
look if we had our email address then we
had our subject and you were writing to
me dear
mrs. voce right the next step you
normally have an opening line almost
like an introduction and I love these
two ways of opening but obviously I have
many many different ones but if you're
replying to an email you would like dear
mrs. Furr J thank you for your mail if
you are replying to me but if you're
writing to me for the first time you
might say a hopeless email finds you
well as in I example over there do you
notice that I've got dear mrs. version
I've skipped a line so you'll format
just like a little you skipping lines
between your paragraphs and you're
obviously your start and your opening
line but these are some dudes if we're
talking about the body of your email so
this is just good writing skills every
new thought is a new paragraph you
should know that in grade 7 you always
need to be polite and respectful you
also need to distinguish between formal
and informal situations and writes
accordingly so if you're writing perhaps
to you to me or to your teacher it's a
little bit more formal if you're writing
to a friend you can be a little bit more
relaxed you need to keep your message
precise and readable so that's not this
long essay when people get long emails
we tend to just skim and scan through
them obviously try and make sure that
your email message is to the point you
can always add attachments but yeah and
just make sure that it's readable it's
not mean to be like a whatsapp with
short messages write it so that it's
readable but it's also to the points
proofread your message to edit your
errors often I don't know how many of
you and I'm sorry there is that option
on a watch that sometimes you quickly
say in the words up and then you realize
oh my goodness a couple of spelling
errors or wrong person you can select it
and quickly delete it for everybody
same thing can happen on an email there
is an undo button that gives you a
couple of seconds so I think it's about
30 seconds two minutes in which to undo
something but if you want to before you
get their site where you push it st. and
then go oh my goodness I've made an
error rather I'm not sure how many of
you know but on the corner of your email
that's got the delete button and it's
also got to be these three dots
if it push on these three dots you can
check your spelling so a lovely thing to
do if you are sending an email just
pretty dos bar check and it will check
your spelling for you it'll highlight
them
you click on it it'll give you the
correct spelling then obviously use
simple sentences we've discussed simple
compound and complex sentences you can
also use compound sentences but simpler
sentences get to the point
make sure it's readable much easier to
have ones like that use numbers bullets
and paragraphs to make the message clear
and easy to understand I'm going to show
you now when we get to the end of this
later is is ways in which you could use
bullets or numbers and then when you
close your email you there are also a
number of ways of closing it so you
could do I look forward to hearing from
you I hope to hear from you too
have a wonderful weekend further or have
a wonderful day further have a wonderful
evening further just something that ends
off your email off to the body and
obviously to skip a line and then the
final ending is warmest regards kindest
regards or many things you can even use
from or love it so obviously this is a
little bit more informal if you know the
person like when you start a dear Mary
you could end love from or love but if
you're writing to an adult or a teacher
or it's more formal yeah mrs. Folger
and your ending would be warmest regards
or kind regards or many things and your
then your name and then here are some
definite dos when doing emails and so
don't use slang
hey harder to what's happening also
difficult to answer questions when you
ask them like that and there's no need
to shot so avoid caps letters because
that sounds like you're shouting whether
some whether you mean that or not the
tone that's going to come across
remember when we did our emotive
language the tone is going to be lucky
shortening emoticons are not always
appropriate so obviously if it's um do
you know you can use your emoticons or
you or your emojis like you would on an
SM
but obviously if it's a formal thing
trying to avoid those emojis jokes can
be misunderstood so trying to avoid them
because um be kind yeah the manner in
which she's saying something do not
write hello or hi as your subject so
remember we spoke about your subject
needs to be meaningful and apt if you
just said questions I'm not sure what
the question is about and remember I'm
one of the teachers so if for instance
there's a few of you writing to me as
the English teacher from the art of the
maps and the natural science quick which
questions are they so if you put English
poetry questions it's a little bit more
specific we're going to be able to sort
and and it gives a response to those
emails quicker than if we have to go
through how many to realize that's
actually a map's email and not an
English one so really try to be specific
in terms of your subject and different
not hello or ha do you don't write about
irrelevant issues normally emails or to
get a point across or to ask for
assistance or to convey some important
information they're not just things that
we just send um necessarily as jokes
do not give personal information you
want to keep private for the emails
could end up in the wrong hands so you
do know that obviously lack of watsapp
we can forward it we can forward the
song the joke the email to somebody asks
that really just be very specific about
what you are sending are they and I'm
sure lots of you had those chats about
your digital footprints in terms of what
you are leaving behind you
we always think oh it's fine I am I'm
just sending this off quickly it's never
going to hurt me but remember that
everything we are able to trace and find
out where it came from what it's about
so really just be very careful about
what you're sharing and what you're
singing
and then don't use different files
because sometimes your font and the
other person doesn't have that specific
font on the computer and so it might not
be compatible they might not be able to
read what you've saved right and then if
we take a look just as an example as if
I was one of you if I was sitting to
grade 7 at work she cloud.com that is my
recipients email selected to work she
cloud this is my subject
I want to make sure that the person
getting email knows it's grade seven
first of all not grade five it's the
poetry lesson and it's a question about
the poetry lesson and then let's take a
look that it's got everything that we've
discussed so if they are greeting dear
mrs. voce
it's a formal way is there an opening
sentence I trust this email finds you
well they're not going into the body of
my email I've been watching the lessons
on worksheet clad and specifically the
lesson on poetry and I have some
questions and then you see how I used
the numbers you could use bullets as
well number one are you going to other
lessons on interpretive interpreting
poems I should have a question mark
there can you see good and yeah this one
as well
can you please do a lesson or lessons on
other types of devices such as
symbolisms oxymorons idioms allusions
and irony
so there's your body of your mouth then
I'll skip the line and I've got my
closing sentence I hope to hear from you
soon skipper line warmest regards and
Jack can you just see before we end all
that as you've got the greeting you've
skipped a line then you've got your
opening sentence skip a line then I've
got the body of my mail that set out
correctly and spaced well then I've
skipped a line up ended off with my
closing sentence and then I'll skip the
line and my ending is correct so just
make sure that when you are sending
emails every single time you send an
email if you are sending it for the
first time please make sure that you
follow these guidelines I know that
while we in locked up you will probably
be sending more emails than you have
ever seen in your life just make sure
you got it back to this lesson chick am
i sending it correctly your teachers are
going to be impressed your family and
friends when you sending the emails to
them are going to really be in place
with the way that you've set them out
and your quality of writing so don't
forget to check those spelling check
that you you know the spelling of words
check that you write another kept later
and ending off with a full stop and as
you can see for me did not check that
our head and question marks at the 8th
but yes you love and you learn and so
this is now your turn I'd love you to
participate in the school
so that you can see hi yep if you've
been able to apply what we've been
talking about so write an email to
another learner using the same use the
same age as you but that lives in
another country now you've got a friend
or cousin and what interesting
interesting things can you tell them
about the way you live what are your
hobbies and talents and what questions
do you have for them so that could be
three paragraphs so you could be dear I
hope this email finds you well skip a
lot paragraph one is about your own
place where you live number two
paragraph is about your hobbies and
interests the third one is about
questions that you have me if you are
writing an email to a friend about going
to high school next year
consider the following what are you
excited about or looking for tea and
what makes you nervous or worries you so
that the same thing I have dear I trust
those email finds you well
paragraph one your excitement or what
you're looking forward to skip a line
next paragraph what makes you nervous or
that you worry about skip a line have an
air closing sentence and then warm
regards or love from another idea is to
write an email to your teacher your
actual class teacher or perhaps your
English teacher or family member about
your remote learning experience so in
other words while your home in lockdown
now consider telling them the following
Express your shock or surprise or
excitement about not being at school
what are the positives about being at
home what are the negatives and what
questions do you have for them so again
dear I chose this email finds you well
first paragraph is your shock or your
excitement second paragraph could be the
positives and the third could be the
negatives or you could join those two
together and have positives and
negatives in while and then your third
paragraph or your fourth one depends on
how you do number two in three you'll
have questions and then just remember
write a rough draft first on paper or on
notes on your iPad or even in word on
your computer settle out first check
that you've got that
formats before you even start typing
that on an actual email and then once
you've done it remember to you check
that you have the correct email address
click those three dots in the bottom
right corner to check your spelling and
then you are set to go and can push
seemed I really do hope that this was
helpful just to recap so remember those
things have the greeting have your
opening line body closing line and
ending and obviously these gaps between
those little just one so take a look at
this and really been coached to write
good emails I often get emails from
children from teachers from parents and
are often wonder if they have been
taught the correct format and it's
something that I've had to learn myself
so it's something that you will develop
and get better better at the more you do
it and then there will be activities at
the end of this video so remember when
you click that to close the video you'll
go to the screen that has this and
there'll be a worksheet with a memo and
then just reminder again if you have any
questions for me you're going to send me
an email make sure you use this email
address great 7at worksheet cloud comm
and you better make sure that you're
using that correct format a grade 7 so
again thanks for watching
I do hope I'll see your game soon you
know where I will be same time same
place see you all tomorrow bye
