Persuasive Letter Writing in Year 6.

This term our literacy work has focused on the video campaign ‘There’s a Rang-Tan in My Bedroom’. The children spent time creating a story map, researching deforestation, the use of palm oil in confectionary and toiletries, which companies use palm oil in their products and the effect this has had on orang-utans and their habitats. We then planned a persuasive letter. Next week we will be using our plans to write a letter to a large supermarket, trying to persuade them to stop using palm oil in their products.
