This half-term our unit is all about writing discussions texts. This is very similar to writing a persuasive letter although you have to give a balanced argument for each viewpoint and not try and make up your readers mind. 


Before we start this though, we are writing a recount of our Christmas holidays 5th Jan-7th Jan. Tell me all about your holidays and what you have been up to. 

w/c 10th Jan
