Welcome to the Year 6 class page for Salamander class

Friday 3rd April 2020
 
Please note: we will not be uploading work daily over the Easter holiday. However, we will have a bank of activities for you to access if you would like something to do. 
 
We will also continue to post any blogs you do over Easter as well so remember, we are still here ready to hear from you. 
 
Look under 'Year 6' on the left for the 'Easter activities' page

 

Here's the last thunk of the week:

 

Is soup a food or a drink?

   

Keep in contact and don't forget to let us know what you're up to with either by posting your work or photos on the blog. We'd love to hear from you.

 

Today's writing task is to use your persuasive skills.
 
Watch the following Horrible Histories clip: 
 
 
 
You can write (or video and email it to the office) your advert on Queen Elizabeth's highly 'effective' (not!) Sugar-Paste Toothpaste
 
Or maybe make up a product of your own
 
Have fun with it! 
 
Some things to consider in persuasive writing: 
 
Use evidence to convince your readers
 
Use facts to persuade
 
Get your ‘customer’ on your side
 
Use strong and positive language
 
Make the reader feel everyone else thinks the same 
 
Identify problems before they do 
 
Use humour
 
Here are some sentence starters you could use: 
 
Everyone knows that…
 
Surely, you already know that… 
 
Clearly,.. Surely,.. Obviously,..
