In our English lessons, we have been looking at the genre ‘persuasion.’ We have learnt about different persuasive devices that can be effective- such as the use of emotive language, rhetorical questions, flattery, exaggeration, alliteration and inclusion of facts and statistics. Then we applied our new skills to writing a leaflet on one of two environmental issues linked to discussions in our CCCS lessons. These were: plastic pollution and over-fishing. Why not see if you can spot some of these persuasive devices in our writing?
In Maths, we have been working really hard developing our fraction knowledge. We have practiced adding and subtracting fractions with the same and different denominators. We have also learnt about the difference between a proper and an improper fraction. Building on these skills we learnt how to convert an improper fraction into a mixed numbers. Lastly we learnt how to multiply fractions and we are beginning to build our problem solving skills in relation to fractions. Take a look at some of our super work.
In PESHR we looked Harmful substances and identified the risks associated with these. We discussed the importance of making informed choices and recorded our new learning in a leaflet format.
