Welcome to the Circus! Writing to persuade - create your own circus: traditional or futuristic?

Welcome to the Circus! Writing to persuade - create your own circus: traditional or futuristic?

A resource I created as part of our writing week topic on the Circus. This has a great focus around traditional vs. futuristic circus acts. It looks at the traditional circus and the strange and risque acts it would have included. Then proceeds to discuss not just modern day circus, but extreme acts and the attraction people have with them.It considers the ethics and the technology used today. I then asked the children to create their own circus; they had to then choose 5 acts to promote and plan out what they were going to include in their writing. I have also included a planning frame with success criteria. Children were then asked to complete a short promotional video in iMovie. I have also included the planning notes (end slide) and the instructional writing frame the kids used to use iMovie. The presentation itself is great for some creative writing. It includes all embedded videos for the children to watch and questions to discuss afterwards.
