In this Key Stage 2 literacy ‘Lesson Starters’, suitable for Years 3-6, each of the five short video clips provides a stimulus for pupils to employ a range of persuasive writing techniques.

The first clip takes animals as a starting point - three children show us their pets, telling us why they are wonderful and giving one or two disadvantages or problems in looking after them.

The remaining clips focus on the local neighbourhood, pros and cons of wearing school uniform and a campaign about smoking.
