Persuasive letter writing.
Class 6 started this topic by looking at some exemplar texts. They found and highlighted the features of letter writing and persuasive language. We then did some research about the features of South Shields. The children were asked to look at 3 features in detail and decide why these features might be appealing to visitors. Next they created a plan for their persuasive letter (persuading visitors to spend their holidays in South Shields). Finally they wrote their own persuasive letter.
The children watched ‘Once in a Lifetime’. They were asked to imagine that they were riding on the back of one of the flying turtles. Where would the turtle take them? The children used their imaginations to create an illustration of their new land.
