Over the last two weeks, we have been working on persuasive writing in English. The children have absolutely loved this text type! They have worked passionately and enthusiastically exploring a range of examples and then writing their own versions.
The children's first try at their own was a speech with the aim to persuade Mr Weightman to buy a new slide for Tudor Towers. If I were Mr Weightman, I'd watch out! Some of these were very persuasive.... one even included threatening Mr Weightman with imprisonment if he dared to make the children of Tudor unhappy.
We then began working on our final version - a speech persuading the British men to join the army during WWII. We used Winston Churchill's version as our inspiration and made it even better. Take a look below at the children's speeches that they have presented on Adobe Spark Video. Click the child's name to view or scan the QR code :)
