Real Writing Year 6 - Unit 4
Model text: Visit Florida by Anita Loughrey
Curriculum Links: Geography (North America)

Writing Unit Overview

This writing unit for Year 6 is built around an original model text by Anita Loughrey; a leaflet persuading tourists to visit Florida . The example text is available as a PDF in three versions (plain, illustrated and annotated); annotated and non-annotated PowerPoint presentations are also included.

During this two-week unit, pupils will read a persuasive leaflet about holiday attractions in Florida, learning how expanded noun phrases and persuasive devices are used. This unit could be used within a topic on North America, learning about a specific region (Florida). Finally, they will design their own Florida tourist attraction and write a leaflet persuading tourists to visit.
