Should we have a canteen at Belle Vue? That is the question that grade 1 & 2 have been developing opinions about!
As part of our persuasive writing unit, students have been using oral language to express why they agree or disagree on a given subject. Today they thought about four different questions:
- Should we use computers for everything at school?
- Should we have a canteen at Belle Vue?
- Should kids wear school uniforms?
- Should kids have homework?
The first thing they did was write their name on four sticky notes and add it to the yes/no posters in each classroom. We then discussed our ideas as a class and added some of these to the posters.
Students then created an insect constructed of kinder circles, with each body segment representing one of their ideas that they will use in their persuasive writing tomorrow.
Take a look at some of our great work!
