The children have loved the book ‘Varmints’ and were aiming to persuade the main character to either stay or go. Following their first draft, the children looked at some evidence of wow sentences found in envelopes underneath some trays – they analysed why they were considered to be persuasive and aimed to write their own wow sentence entering it into our very own X factor competition! Every child managed to receive at least one vote and then performed their sentence to the varmint iPad, pleading with him to stay or leave in a conscience alley.
The children used the range of X factor sentences to create their final draft which are now on display in class above the clay models they created! Amazing work Golden Gate class! Please watch the video below:
