Explore persuasive writing using this summer themed writing pack. Pupils will read a leaflet about local river cruises, identifying layout features and modal verbs, as well as looking at language devices used to persuade.
Pupils will then write their own leaflet, persuading people to visit another tourist attraction. This could be one in your local area, one that they have visited or an attraction that they imagine using the images as inspiration.
This primary resources pack includes:
- Model text – River Cruises
- Tourist attraction image cards
- Planning sheet
- Themed writing paper
- Teaching notes with guidance on how the resources could be used
