English - Persuasive letters

Our English lesson today is based on identifying features of persuasive texts. Before you begin, have a think about what persuasive features you know and what phrases could be included? Add these to your magpie page.


 The features we will be looking at are:

  • modal verbs
  • list of three
  • repetition of ideas / vocabulary
  • rhetorical questions
  • imperative verbs


Follow the instructions from the video- remembering to pause and complete the activities when asked to. Use the 'next activity' or green dots at the bottom of the page to navigate through.


Remember to add to your magpie page as you watch the video.


Below you will find a link to a printable version of the slides.


After completing your task - resume the video for feedback to self mark and edit your work before uploading on seesaw.


Don't forget the exit quiz! Record your score on your piece of work before you photograph it to upload so your Class Teacher can see how you are getting on.


Can you order you spelling words (8 with an ably suffix and 2 of your own),  into alphabetical order?
