English

 

In English this half-term we will be writing persuasive letters.

 

We will be analysing the language features of persuasion texts such as adjectives, coordinating and subordinating conjunctions and rhetorical questions to help us write our own!

 

We will be linking our English lessons to our Learning Challenge topic - recycle, reduce and reuse!
