English 

LO: To identify features of a persuasive letter.

This week will be writing persuasive letters. These will be linked to Alex Rider (our new text Stormbreaker) – encouraging MI6 to pick you as a spy. What qualities do you have that would make you a good spy?

Now, think about persuasive writing. What features do we find in persuasive letters? How many features can you remember?

Today, we are going to focus on three features of a persuasive letter (rhetorical questions, hyperbole and flattery).

Open this PowerPoint to help you.

Open this planning document and complete the rhetorical questions, hyperbole and flattery sections. What would you need to include to encourage MI6 to select you as their next child spy?

Spicy – create a mind map naming the effects of the ocean currents.

Hot – write a paragraph explaining what currents are and how they affect the planet and the UK.

 

Wednesday

English 

LO: To write an engaging opening paragraph.

What is the purpose of a persuasive letter? What are the features we should include to be successful? Look at this example. Does it have all the features? Could we make it better?

An opening paragraph to a letter needs to include key details that explain to the person you are writing to why you are writing and why they should read on.  Use the PowerPoint here to help you understand what needs to be included in an opening paragraph.

When confident, look at your planning sheet from yesterday and write a good opening paragraph in the space available to you.

Thursday

English 

LO: To summarise effectively in a closing statement or conclusion

Remember, we are writing a letter to MI6 encouraging them to pick you as a spy. Have a look at your plan so far. Is there anything you could change? Spend some time improving your plan and finishing writing any details you have yet to complete.

Closing statement or conclusion - at the end of your letter, you must summarise what you have said. It should be brief, to the point and explain what you hope to happen next. Have a go at writing a conclusion in your plans. 

When you have finished your plan, and checked it to make sure it is perfect, write it up into a final finished letter. Remember to include what you have in your plan but don't be afraid to add extra details if you think they improve your writing.

Friday

English 

LO: To summarise key information from different parts of the text.

Re-read chapter 1 from this PowerPoint. Today, we are going to try and find any unfamiliar words from this chapter. As you read write down any words that you do not understand.

Next, using this template here, fill out the sheet with the detail that is relevant for the words you do not understand. Try to do this for at least two words.

Now, the main task for today - you will be creating a social media profile for Alex Rider. Remember, you must be 13 to have a social media profile, but Alex is 14 so this is ok for him.

Use this template here to try and create a social media profile for him. Think about the key events that have happened to him so far. What would he be writing about?
