Over the week we will look at different 2D shapes and triangles too. Complete each of the worksheets on the day and save it to your BGFL files.

In English this week, we are going to look at features of persuasive writing in preparation for making our own posters in support of the charity Water Aid. They work to provide people in countries that suffer from water scarcity access to fresh, clean water and need all the support they can get to continue their wonderful work around the world.


Tuesday: Features of persuasive writing:

Watch the following video to familiarise yourself with the persuasive features of adverts.


Then watch this video all about persuasion:

Look at the following poster from Water Aid and see if you can identify the key features discussed in the videos.



Wednesday: Research Water Aid

Today you are going to carry out your own research on Water Aid. Make notes under the features of persuasive writing we looked at yesterday:

Data/Facts - to get your point across with supporting evidence.

Repetition - What sort of phrases and words are repeated in their posters/material?

Imperative verbs - bossy words and commands are often used to get you to do something,

Expanded nouns - can you spot the expanded nouns in the adverts and think of some of your own too?

Rhetorical questions: do they really want you to answer their questions or is it to get you thinking? Can you spot the rhetorical questions in the posters?

Keep all of this information safe for when you write your own short paragraph for your posters.
