Year Five Persuasive Writing: Using My Forest
The 'My Forest' mnemonic;
M - Markers or connectives to shape your writing
Y - Refer to 'you' and 'you're'
F - Facts
O - Opinions
R - Rhetorical Questions
E - Experts
S - Statistics
T - Rule of three (Repeat something 3 times for it to stick in peoples heads)
We've learnt about facts, the rule of three and rhetorical questions.
Task: Please write a paragraph - eight-ten lines or so - to persuade your Mum or Dad to let you go to bed an hour later. Don't forget to combine our persuasive techniques: facts, the rule of three and rhetorical questions. Finished? Check over your work and then annotate it using a gel pen, showing me where you have used the different rhetorical techniques.
