Pupils may write simple persuasive texts in year 1 or 2, persuading someone to do something or to change their thinking. Develop understanding of the features of persuasive writing and how it is structured with the help of the resources provided, which can be used instantly by pupils. These resources can be used to support teaching and learning during an English unit focusing on persuasion to share the features needed for this style of writing, and to identify the features in model texts that are shared.
The poster can be used to teach how these text types are structured and the grammar, vocabulary and punctuation typically used.
A variety of planning sheets is included, in slightly differing formats for you to choose from, to support pupils when noting and organising their ideas before writing. These include templates for writing a simple persuasive advert and a simple grid template for pupils to write or draw their ideas.
