Hello Year 5 children
This morning for english, I would like you to write a letter to Ms Adams to persuade her to either ban school uniforms or keep school uniforms. It is important that you use your writing targets and persuasive language in your letter. Please see an example of a persuasive letter that I have started below. I have also attached a sheet, which contains persuasive language that you can include within your letter. After you have completed your writing, please re-read your text and edit it where appropriate.
Dear Ms Adams,
I am writing to you regarding an issue that I feel passionate about. I strongly believe that the wearing of school uniform in our school should be banned. I have a few convincing arguments to support my view.
To begin, school uniforms are dull and boring to look at. Many school uniforms, which are uncomfortable, have the same white t-shirt and grey trouser or skirt combination. Who wants to see four hundred children wearing the same clothes every day?
Furthermore, school uniforms are expensive. Parents often have to buy school uniform for two or more children. This means that it can become even more costly for them! Also, school uniforms can get damaged. This means that there are pricey to replace.
Here you can learn about the learning of Year 5.
