Writing Unit Overview

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

In this two-week unit, pupils will explore how the advert is persuading readers and create their own persuasive advert for a new pair of trainers that they have designed. This unit could be used within a topic based on healthy lifestyles or materials and develop pupils understanding of persuasive writing in KS2.
