Convince me why you should have my last Rolo?





Children in Year 6, have been currently exploring persuasive devices and techniques to use in their writing. As a stimulus, we got the children to persuade their class teacher to give them their last Rolo, based on the famous Rolo advert as a hook. These techniques include:

  • Emotive language
  • Rhetorical questions and repetition
  • Exaggeration and hyperbole
  • Flattery
  • Veiled threats
  • Imperatives and calls for action
  • Appeals to logic or reason
  • Criticising the opposite point of view
