We will be learning how to use persuasive features such as rhetorical questions, repetition, alliteration and expanded noun phrases to convince our readers to believe our point of view. We will be reading texts about the important links Manchester has to bees, as well as learning about important people through History with links to Manchester such as the incredible Alan Turin when we learn about one sided arguments and then using the story Shoe Smith Charlie to look at the Industrial Revolution and how this affected Manchester to make it the city it is today.
We will also be using Colourful Semantics to help us improve our writing too.
