Homework 30.9.11

This week we have continued our work on slavery.  We have discovered that in order to write persuasively, we must consider both sides of the argument - this in not an easy task.  As part of our Literacy, we planned and staged a debate, allowing each child the opportunity to use logic, reason, heart string plucking and powerful language to try to persuade the other pupils to agree with them.  I have been incredibly impressed by the thoughtful, mature and well-reasoned arguments put forward by the class.  Especially if they were put in the very difficult position of passionately defending a position they disagree with.

Thank you for all your hard work 6L, I an very proud of you.

Literacy Homework

As we have been learning about African Slavery, we would like you to write a short story set in these times. Your story could include being kidnapped from your village or the terrifying journey on the slave ship. Perhaps you could write a story set in a cotton plantation or at the slave auction. You can write from the slaves' point of view or perhaps you would like to be a slave owner? It is your choice.

Before you write, think about all the elements of effective story writing and try to apply these to your writing.

e.g. interesting opening, wow words, a range of sentences, emotive language, detail and description, etc...
