Persuasive Letter Writing Year 5

(1)
This is a weeks plan based on writing a persuasive letter. First of all, it involves teaching children the different persuasive tricks such as flattery, rhetorical questions, repetition, exaggeration etc. These lessons also involve children orally trying to persuade each other, or their class teacher by using the above techniques. Children enjoyed persuading a lot. These lessons also touch on letter writing (formal) and ensure that children use the correct structure and tone depending on who they are writing to. We happened to be learning about Ancient Greece at the time, so the letter in which is used as a model, is connected to Ancient Greece. INCLUDED: *5 day detailed lesson plan *Colourful, detailed Notebook file. *Sample persuasive letter *Sample persuasive letter for lower ability groups *2 scaffolding resources for lower ability children *Letter template for planning *Simple presentation to hone in on the features *Success criteria for children to assess their own work

I couldn't find a text on line which provided the example of what I was looking for in a model persuasive letter. So I wrote one (and wish that i had done earlier as it was quicker) This is a letter to the head teacher which tries to persuade them to get rid of school uniform. It can be used as a model text to look at with the children to identify features and language. It could be used a starting letter to be up-leveled and improved We used it as the 'Imitate' text at the beginning of a T4W cycle Hope you find it useful and it saves you some time.

A Short KS1 Writing unit based on the popular children’s picture book: The Pirates Next Door. The unit inspires quality, structured writing that meets the new KS1 writing KPis at Expected and Greater Depth Level The unit covers: Reading phase: inferring a character’s thoughts and actions Writing with a clear purpose and viewpoint Organising related ideas into sections and paragraphs short openings and endings past tense regular and irregular verbs using capital letters for proper nouns I started this unit with drama - getting into the role of the villagers and focusing on their viewpoint. How were they feeling when the Pirates arrived in town? Why were most villagers angry? What did they think? say? Then they completed the reading inference speech bubbles for 2 different character viewpoints. (see example) Then I held a council meeting for the residents of ‘Dull-On-Sea’ and the children were given a format to record the ‘notes of the meeting’ From the notes- they used a structured letter template to create a letter to the council complaining about the Pirates’ arrival. This was highly successful and created fantastic letters with clear viewpoints. The pack includes: 1x character though bubble recording sheet 1x example speech bubbles inferring a character viewpoint 1x template for council notes recording sheet 1x letter to council template/structured support sheet 1x word mat containing regular past tense verbs and character names from the book to support spelling.
