Year 5 English - Secret Agent Applicationsx

IOur ‘hook’ into this term’s writing saw us climbing, scaling, balancing, dodging and retrieving gems in a spy inspired agility course! From this we were able to think of the different skills and attributes it takes to become a secret agent. Once we had identified proficiencies such as stamina, dexterity, intelligence and co-ordination, we then went on to exaggerate these talents and flatter our chosen audience as we applied for a job with one of the world’s top spy agencies. Along the way, we also explored the features of persuasive writing, looking at the way we can use exaggeration, rhetorical questions and evidence to make our arguments more convincing - all of which we drew together to produce our final application forms, a fantastic example of which you can see below...

    Application to work for The Organisation
    It is with great pleasure that I am applying for the position of secret espionage agent within The Organisation. Unearthing the location of the hidden nuclear weapons documents, which are highly classified, is of the upmost importance to me. Without question, once you have read about my plethora of talents and attributes, I am sure you will be persuaded that I am the most suitable person for this role.

    Firstly, the location of the mission (The Brazilian Jungle, South America) is perfect, due to the fact I am exceedingly familiar with the area. Favourably, my intelligence has been perfected, therefore I can now speak 7 different languages (including Pirahă). As a result, I am able to move without suspicion at: Christ the Redeemer; Iguazu Falls and Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon. Concealing myself, by mixing with the local tribes people has allowed me to understand their everyday lives. Additionally, my agility is second to none! It is my special feature! Using my cheetah like speed, has allowed me to track down several secret documents in the past. No mission is of the least importance! Having studied the intricacies of all of the state-of-the-art technology has been a serious bonus, therefore any organisation shall benefit from having an agent that is as capable as me. Moreover, the fact that my dexterity has allowed me to perfect my precision with every weapon possible (I can handle any weapon), all adds to my suitability for the role. Priding myself in an extensive range of abilities (co-ordination, flexibility and astuteness) is vitally important, consequently I am able to defeat anyone. Surely you will agree that I am a valuable asset?

    Obviously, I would be honoured to lead The Organisation in its hunt to find the secret documents. By employing me as your new recruit, you will find that the secret documents will be in the secret vault as soon as possible. As you can see, you are the most powerful organisation ever! You make me even more eager to earn the title of X12… and be rewarded with a license to kill. I enthusiastically await your response.
