Week 1 and 2
For our English journey for the first 2 weeks we are going to be focusing on the picture book Never, Ever Shout in a Zoo".
From this picture book we are exploring what it is like to go to the zoo through virtual safaris and acting out in groups. We will learn to debate the pros and cons for zoos though class talk and research. We then plan to look at writing an article to persuade someone either to go to the zoo/safari or not to go.
The aim of this 2 week piece is to write persuasively.
Week 1 - Context lessons. Exploring key vocabulary and language of a persuasive text
Week 2 - Independently plan and write a persuasive article to encourage someone to go or not go to the zoo. Aiming to draw in the audience through various techniques and use emotive language
