Year 5 - Writing to persuade

Tuesday, 17 March 2020

In Year 5, we have been writing to persuade. Before we did this, we had a class debate about whether Aunt Glo and Rashid should contact the press as their son has disappeared. Surprisingly Year 5 were were extremely good at arguing their point using evidence from the text.

We then used the information from the debate to write to persuade the reader. The last part of the journey was to edit our work.

We used editing stations to remain focused with what we needed to include. These stations included; punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, uplevelling words and spelling. Here are some pictures of our editing stations.
