"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Week 1

Monday 22nd February - this half term we are going to be looking at persuasive writing. Today I would like you to think about something you have always wanted, it might be a toy or a pet - then have a go at writing some paragraphs to try and persuade your parents, myself and Mrs Taylor to get it for you. Use the structure below and take a sneak peek at Miss Mabbott's example (no copying!) to help you with your paragraphs.

 

Intro  (1st paragraph) - Describe  and tell us about the pet you really want.

First reason to buy (2nd paragraph) The first reason you should get .... is for....

Second reason to buy (3rd paragraph) The second reason you should get ..... is for...

 

Tuesday 23rd February - today we are going to have a look at alliteration. This is a feature found in many persuasive texts. Watch the video: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zfkk7ty/articles/zq4c7p3

 read the ppt below and then have a go at the activity below :) Remember you don't need to print you can write out your answers in your exercise books.

Wednesday 24th February - today we are going to have a look at another feature of persuasive writing. Today we will be recapping what noun phrases and expanded noun phrases are. Watch the video: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zmqh2v4 and have a go at the activity below, using expanded noun phrases to describe the given objects. Remember you don't need to print, you can write your expanded noun phrases in your books :)
Thursday 25th February - today I would like us to explore compound sentences. Watch the video that explores different types of sentences https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z4m8r2p . Read through the ppt and then have a go at the activity - changing the simple sentences into compound sentences. Remember you can just write them out in your books :)

Friday 26th February - today I would like you to identify some of the features we have looked at so far in the persuasive advert below - use the checklist and record examples of these features in your books e.g. rhetorical questions = What are you waiting for? You may choose to use a key to colour code the example. You may want to create a table like the one below...
