This week the prep students have been working on developing their persausive language for speaking and writing. They have been enjoying us reading the Magic Faraway Tree to them, so we used this as the stimulus for their writing. Firstly, they had to create their own ‘Land’ for the Faraway Tree. Then we watched the first movie together and discussed the language of adverts and the sorts of words and language to use when we need to persuade someone. The students then had the challenge to write a persausive advert for their own Faraway Tree Land to persuade someone to come and visit. We think the students did an awsome job as you can hopefully see from the second video.
Enjoy the magic Faraway Tree Lands!
