Year 5 had an emotive discussion last week in preparation for their persuasive writing task in English. This has linked beautifully with our geography topic about deforestation and the negative effects upon the Amazon Rainforest. The children then wrote a letter to persuade the reader that we need to take action to reduce the harm that is being caused. The letters were packed full of facts and the children used a fantastic range of linguistic techniques to show their passion for ending deforestation. Well done Year 5!
