Weekly Writing Challenge #2 WB 30.3.20

For your writing task this week I would like you to:

Choose one endangered predator you would like to save and write a speech about why we should be saving your chosen endangered predator.

I have broken this task into steps so it might be helpful to try and do a step a day at your own pace.

Step 1: You may find it helpful to research your predator first before writing your speech (please see research links and videos below ).

Links to support your research:

  •  https://owlcation.com/stem/Childrens-Informaion-on-Endangered-Animals
  • https://www.dkfindout.com/uk/more-find-out/special-events/endangered-animals/
  • https://animalfactguide.com/animal-facts/

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2: Plan your speech using the planning sheet at the bottom of this blog this will help you decide what you need to include in your speech.

Step 3: Write your speech:

Think about using:

- Cursive handwriting

- Capital letters and full stops correctly.

- Paragraphs-https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvwwxnb/articles/z9n73k7

- Facts and statistics about your endangered predator.

-A range of subordinating conjunctions: although, after, because, when, if and that- https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/guides/zxnkj6f/revision/4

- Possessive apostrophes-https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvwwxnb/articles/zx9ydxs

**Challenge** Persuasive language-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hD9arWXIddM

 

Step 4:  Re-read your work, and edit and improve your writing.

 

You might even want to record your speech once you've done your research and be your own very next David Attenborough!

I can't wait to see how you get on and please email your work to: sealions-teachers@keyworth.notts.sch.uk

 

Take care and I miss you all lots,

Miss Fowell
