Welcome to the Autumn term English page! This term, we have got many exciting things planned related to our geography topic: India.
To start off this term, we are going to begin by doing some persuasive writing all about India. This is a form of writing where you try to convince somebody about the benefits of something (in this case, the benefits of travelling to India).
What is persuasive writing?
When writing for persuasion, your choice of vocabulary is very important. Remember, you want to think about all of the positive things you are discussing (e.g. for India, think about all of the great places that can be visited).
When writing persuasively, there are several things that you will need to include within your writing. For example, you will need:
We will also be looking at poetry related to our India topic. We will be thinking about the sights, sounds and smells of India.
What is Poetry?
Later in the term we will be looking at how to write magazine articles? What magazines have you looked at? Do you buy/have any delivered regularly?
For the final part of the Autumn term, we will be writing Sci-Fi themed stories! We will start off by planning our story, thinking carefully about the problem and the solution, after which we will write the final version.
For our writing, we need to think about the following things -
Setting - This is the place in which the story takes place (in this instance it will be the planet on which your story will be based). You may start the journey elsewhere however (e.g. Earth). Make sure to include lots of descriptive language to describe your setting!
Characters - Make sure to use lots of interesting adjectives to describe the characters in your story. It may be a good idea to use similes here to describe what the sci-fi character looks like (e.g. skin as red as a tomato).
Problem - Your story needs to have a clear problem that occurs along the journey (e.g. the ship breaks down/crash lands on another planet).
Solution - Your story needs to have a clear solution to the problem - In other words, how is the issue resolved.
