Should we come back to School? - Writing Persuasively 

 

Hello Year 3,

 

Thank you for all of your hard work over the last 2 weeks, I loved reading through your letters. You have produced some amazing work and myself and Miss Arnold enjoyed learning different cool facts about yourselves.

 

This week, we are going to be focusing on writing persuasively! We are going to be looking at the features and different literary devices that we can include in our work in order to argue for and against the following question:

 

Should we come back to school?

Monday - WALT: deconstruct a piece of persuasive writing to identify its key features or literary devices.

 

For todays lesson we are going to be looking at the different features that we would expect to see in a piece of persuasive writing. 

 

I would like you to look at the WAGOLL I have attached below. Can you highlight the different features that I have listed? Underline them in different colours to show where each feature has been used.

Tuesday - WALT: explore opposing viewpoints through discussion

 

For todays lesson we are going to begin to think about our lead question:

 

Should we come back to school?

 

Our task for today is to discuss the question with someone who lives in your household or our school bubble. Can we argue both sides of the argument for the question above?

 

What do you think? Don't be afraid to share your opinions. 

 

If you would like you can write your ideas down once you have discussed them.

Take a look at our arguments from yesterdays lesson!!!

Our Arguments FOR coming back to School
Our Arguments AGAINST coming back to school

Wednesday - WALT: explore persuasive writing by arguing for or against a subject

 

For todays lesson, we are going to be continuing the work that we started yesterday. 

 

We are going to begin to form our arguments for or against the question: Should we come back to school.

 

Yesterday we discussed our ideas verbally as a group. Today I would like you to begin to write each of your arguments down as formal sentences.

 

We need to remember our correct tense, person and most importantly spellings, capital letters and punctuation where appropriate.

Thursday - WALT: explore persuasive writing by extending sentences using conjunctions

 

During todays lesson, we are going to be continuing to build our arguments for and against our lead question:

 

Should we come back to school?

 

Our task for today is to extend our ideas further by adding different conjunctions to allow us to explain the points that we have made for our arguments so far.

 

For example:

 

School is fun might become, school is fun because I get to take part in lots of different activities and lessons.  Or

 

School is not fun because we have to write and I do not enjoy writing that much.

 

See how many of your ideas you can extend by adding a conjunction.

Friday - WALT: extend an argument by adding persuasive language

 

During todays lesson, we are going to be thinking about how we might be able to extend our writing even further. 

 

We are going to be thinking of how we can add persuasive language to our sentences in order to ensure that they are able to fully support our different arguments. 

 

I would like you to use the different word mats below in order to pick some useful words or phrases and extend your ideas further.
