Discussion, debate, persuasion
Overview and Outcomes:
Using the award winning 2012 Guardian ‘Three Little Pigs’ advert, this planning sequence gives the children opportunities to explore journalistic writing by identifying viewpoint and bias. It also looks at other writing which requires a ‘stance’ or point of view portrayed from a particular angle., such as a diary, a defence case for a lawyer and balanced debate./discussion text. There will be opportunities for embedded grammar work throughout, in particular that of active and passive and the role active and passive can play in reported events.
