Persuasive Writing

The last couple of weeks we have been learning a lot about persuasive writing. We have learnt that a persuasive piece of writings purpose is to try and persuade someone to agree with your opinion.

It has been a lot of fun reading everyone's opinions on topics that include: the sense we could best live without, a pet in room 10, changing the flag and what the picture is. Everyone has worked hard to establish arguments that support their opinion, and structure their writing so that it is easy to read.

To help us correctly structure our writing we have been thinking about putting our writing into a BURGER! The top bun is our introduction, all the fillings are our arguments, and the bottom bun is the conclusion. We have spoken about the idea that it is extremely hard to eat a burger without both buns, and how this is the same with our writing.

Take a look at some of our amazing persuasive writing pieces. I am sure we will have you all converted to our opinions in no time!


Dear Mrs Knyvett,

You told us that we couldn't have a pet for the class. But my problems are that room 6 get’s a pet fish and I bet that we should have a parrot.

I reckon that room 10 should have a parrot. It will be good for learning for everyone in the class. If a new kid comes to Stanley Ave School and he or she doesn't  no english he or she can go to the parrot.
And talk to it and learn english too. Someone can take the parrot home for the night.They can cheer you up if our sad and the parrot can teach you responsibility.

The class should have an opportunity to have a parrot to learn more.

Sincerely from Harry.

Dear Mrs Knyvett

It would be a great idea if  we could have a pet dog in our classroom. It would be a good friend if your being bullied  or if you are bleeding the dog would lick it clean  and  make it feel better. If you let us have the dog as the award we would to spend  10 minutes with the dog. The dog would love to run around so if we  behave  we could run with the dog. The dog would guide  kids that can’t see. Also it would be a bright star in room 10 and we would take so much care of the dog and we will brush it and stroke it. If one of us is being bad they would be on poo duty and pee duty. Or the boys do poo duty and the bad girls do pee duty  and that is my reasons why we need  a dog in room 10 .
If you are reading this a dog would help us with our fitness and a good starter pet  and we will look after it in room 10.



Dear Fairy God Mother,

I have been deciding what sense I want to lose and it is my sight. I know that if I lose my sight then I wouldn’t see violent scenes and scary movies so I wouldn’t be scared.I wouldn’t be attracked to sweet stuff on the bench like mac and  cheese.I would still taste broccoli and gravy, and would  feel hayleys warm hand,I would smell sausages on the bbq,and I would hear the crackling fire. I think I could live without sight.

Yours sincerely,
