Non-fiction unit in Literacy

As part of our non-fiction unit in Literacy, year 3/4 have studied “Persuasive Writing” techniques. As we are all very passionate about animals, we chose to discuss the topic of zoos. The class started by thinking about all the positive things about zoos before turning to look at the negative points. We used drama to hot seat and take on the role of an animal in the zoo so we could consider another P.O.V - Point of view. After finding out more facts and considering all the research we had to choose to be either “For” or “Against” zoos. We then had a class debate and were allowed to change our opinion if we had been persuaded by the other team. Finally, we wrote persuasive arguments to convince our audience that zoos were either good or bad.
