Learning Log promt

I am really looking forward to seeing your logs in two weeks time.
Your prompt is an open one, so you can do anything you want.

Two fabulous logs have been returned to school this morning. 
Well done Amber and Luke A, super work about gymnastics and football superstars.

Adverts week 2

Tuesday was spent looking at the adverts and the Big Write winner was chosen. 

Here is the winning advert, can you identify the reasons why it was chosen?

The children had to reflect on their work and give suggestions of what would be done to improve - called a wish, other children also gave a star (something they thought was good about it)

A star

These are the things to consider next time

This morning we watched some adverts we might see on the T.V and we discussed the similarities and differences between those on screen and the ones in print.

In groups, the children began to plan their adverts we will film and, hopefully, show on our blog.

The children will continue tomorrow producing their story board and script.

*Homework - look out for an advert and consider the following things

What makes it effective?
What type of language is used?
How does it persuade?
What other features can you see?
Who is the advert aimed at?

Big Writing task - Adverts

The Big Write task was to produce an advert for one of the six items we are selling in Warner-mart.

Have the children remembered any of the features we have discussed this week?

Leave some feedback, maybe a star and a wish.



























Which product would you buy and why? 

What persuaded you to buy it?

Who is the target audience?
