Teach children how to write persuasively with this KS1 text types resource pack on persuasive writing. The resources are based on a model text persuading an adult in school to allow a pet dragon for class 2B, showing WAGOLL (what a good one looks like), with a planning sheet to support pupils to write their own persuasive letter.

This KS1 resource includes:

  • Model text - A letter that persuades - A letter to a teacher, trying to persuade them why the writer should have a pet dragon.
  • Persuasive writing sheet - A PDF containing success criteria that pupils can use to support their writing. It includes examples of present tense verbs and question sentences
  • Persuasion idea cards - A series of cards that have potential pets, including some that are real possibilities and others that are not, to inspire writing.
  • Persuasion writing plan - A worksheet to support pupils to plan and structure their writing.
  • Writing paper - A PDF sheet that pupils could use to present their work.
