Year 5 have been busy in English writing persuasive letters to Ms Messer persuading her to ban school uniform. Unfortunately, Ms Messer did not agree and made a lot of valid points to counter argue. However, she agreed for Year 5 to have a non-school uniform day. Ms Messer also agreed to wear school uniform on that day to get a feeling of what it's like. We think it really suited her.
Last week we learnt to read, write and perform poetry in the style of Maya Angelou. We discussed her ideas and wrote out how we would feel being discriminated against. We really enjoyed this activity and found it inspirational.
We used talk for writing to practise our persuasive letters. This helped us remember key information and the persuasive techniques.
