In English this week, we are going to be learning all about balanced arguments. Mrs Paul would like us to decide whether Wyberton should become a plastic free school - see her letter to the Badgers below! In our lessons this week, we are going to research reasons for and against plastics being used in school and identify the features of a balanced argument.


The powerpoint below will help you with this and explains each day's activities.


Lesson 1 - 

In our English lessons, we are going to be working towards writing a balanced argument.


A balanced argument has reasons for an against a certain topic question. Our balanced argument will focus on:

Should Wyberton Primary Academy become a plastic-free school? 


In today's lesson, I would like you to research reasons for Wyberton becoming a plastic free school and reasons against. You can write these ideas in your lined book. Some information is on the powerpoint to help you with this.


Lesson 2 - In this lesson you are going to find the features of a balanced argument. Read the slides for today's lesson and the example text which is below. Use the toolkit below (which is also in the powerpoint) and find these features in the text.


Lesson 3 - in today's lesson, we are going to write our introduction using subordinating conjunctions. Read the slides to see examples of subordinating conjunctions and I have included an example introduction to help you.


Please send me photos or Tweets of your work and I can give you feedback. If you get stuck with anything, please contact me. I can't wait to see your work!
