A fully resourced and creatively planned 3 week writing unit pitched at Year 4. Children learn about leaflet texts that both inform and persuade. Firstly children explore an information leaflet about the British Airways i360. They go on to design their own viewing towers and create leaflets to advertise them. Finally they create a leaflet for any tourist attraction local to your school. If you decide to buy, please use the zip - it is organised into subfolders for each lesson.
