In year 3 this week we have been writing persuasive letters based on the story ‘The Firework Maker’s Daughter’. To help our writing we took on the role of different characters in our book. We discussed different techniques on how to be persuasive and tried to use them during our role play. We had a fantastic time and enjoyed finding out about persuasive language.
Eloquent and Truthful
In Year 3 this week we have been thinking about the importance of being eloquent and truthful. We have read a variety of stories from the Bible and have used these stories to help us reflect on our own lives. We realised that speaking well of others and always telling the truth can be a little tricky at times, but we all agreed that even if we didn’t quite get this right sometimes, we will keep on trying because that’s what Jesus taught us to do.
Finally we made a prayer chain, which helped us to think about how we could be eloquent and truthful and we asked God to help us.
