Dear Prime Minister

As part of our 'Lightning Writing' activities, we wrote some emails to the Prime Minister suggesting some things which might be done to improve our country. Some of the best examples are below:

Dear Prime Minister,
I would like to make a few changes to our country. Firstly, schools need to make learning more fun, so, for example, take the learning outside.
Secondly, the dinners: why have, say, fish fingers, which are on Wednesday. Can’t we have a mix up?
Yours sincerely,
Amy M

Dear Prime Minister,
I think you could make the country better by giving homes to the homeless because every person in the world deserves a home to stay warm and have shelter from storms.
Yours sincerely,
Lola N-M

Dear Prime Minister,
I think this country could be better by adding more houses all around our neighbourhood, but only where people want it.
When they build houses, they can’t be flats; they have to be proper houses because it will include more people near and around you. Also it will make the lives happier and easier as well.
Yours sincerely,
Aston L
