2 Peter’s Birthday Party Peter wanted to invite his friends to his birthday party. He wondered what to write in the invitation cards.“Mum,” said Peter, “could you please teach me how to write an invitation card?”“Sure ! You can start with phrases like ‘Please come to my birthday party’, ‘You’re invited to …’ or “It’s a party’. Always ask people politely.Remember to end your invitation with a closing phrase and your name. Don’t forget to ask for a reply. You can use ‘R.S.V.P.’ to mean ‘Please reply’.”Peter followed the instructions his mother gave him and wrote the invitation cards.The next day, Peter gave out his invitation cards to his friends at school They thanked Peter for the invitation and said that they would reply soon. Sandy apologised for not being able to go to his party.
