In our latest inquiry into writing, writers will write about something they have experiences in and are passionate about (or are not passionate about J). They will share their opinion- whether it is positive or negative and will use evidence (their own experience) to support their opinion.
This unit allows writers to feel that their opinions are valued and have an audience.
We have been immersing ourselves as writers in reviews – of toys, of games, of books, of hotels. And we have been exploring the purpose of those reviews – how do they work? We have been able to make connections to our own experiences – how is it connected to other things? And we have noticed that sometimes our perspective can be different from others – what are the points of view?
Our eagle-eyed critics are sharpening their pencils ready to make their opinions heard!
