Writing focus: ambitious vocabulary, pronouns, fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases
3 week unit on writing persuasive letters week 1 - deforestation focus week 2 - plastic pollution focus week 3 - following an activity ( we went to the aquarium but could be a litter pick or talk/video) children write a final persuasive letter to a chosen audience. In this planning we chose to write to the Prime Minister, adding in a suitable photo they downloaded from the internet. Each week has a letter write so that progress can be seen across work.
