We have had some exciting news this week! Both Durham cathedral and Beamish have responded to our leaflets. Beamish want to write an article about us, and Durham cathedral want to display our work! Well done, so proud of you!
As you know we have been working on persuasion this week. Everyone has worked so hard, and improved their writing! I know Mrs Hodgson is going to be excited to see you in the morning, to move your cars around the track! They are so good, that I have sent them to the Metrocentre, Durham Cathedral and Beamish, so hopefully they let us know what they think. Below are examples of some of the leaflets, let us know what you think!
This is group 2. They tried hard to develop their expression, to try and engage their audience.
This is group one. They worked really hard, remembering their persuasive leaflets from their maps!
Our genre in literacy this week is persuasion. We have looked at a variety of texts, and produced our own persuasive leaflet, selling the school as a weekend activity base!
To understand persuasive techniques, we have held telephone conversations (one person was a local resident, while the other was the persuasive head teacher). We also made persuasive recommendations about visiting a farm, using boastful language and persuasive sentence openers!
