In English this term, we have been learning to write persuasive writing. The children started the term by practicing Alan Peat’s sentences which they included in their final piece of work. Through this topic, the children also learnt to use a range of conjunctions (but, so, if, because, or) to extend their ideas. Another main focus for our writing this term is to use persuasive sentence openers (e.g. the studies show, the evidence shows, I strongly believe, It is true that. Children learnt to plan and edit their work and also present their completed piece as a speech in front of the classroom.
