In literacy at the moment we are learning how to write a persuasive speech.
Today we did lots of background reading about joining the army in Roman times and then we did some drama role play to give us ideas for our writing.
We imagined we were Roman citizens applying to join the Roman army. In Roman times it was a great honour to be chosen to be a soldier so we had to use our powers of persuasion to become part of the army!
We are moving on to write persuasive speeches and today’s lesson really helped us clarify our ideas.
We can’t wait to get stuck into more writing!
