Battle of Britain and Persuasive Texts in Year 5

In History this term, we have been learning about the Battle of Britain! We have learnt what different words mean linked to World War II, we have discussed which events were most important during the battle, and we have designed posters trying to persuade people to join the RAF (Royal Air Force). The Battle of Britain was a battle in the skies above Britain against Germany. It was only a part of World War II, but very important!
In Literacy, we have been learning about persuasive texts such as:
• Adverts
• Persuasive letters
• One sided arguments
We have learnt different persuasive techniques e.g. modal verbs and rhetorical questions. This week we wrote a one-sided argument about the Scottish referendum, with most of us agreeing that it should remain part of the UK.
