Writing 
 Persuasive writing. 
Can you remember what persuasive writing is?
Here is a quick reminder with a you tube clip to explain what persuasive writing is:
1. State what you want to say.
2. Give your first reason.
3. Give another reason but remember to use link words like -another reason and  also.
Here is my example of persuasive writing:
 
The sun is better than the rain.
I think the sun is better than the rain.
I think this because it makes the world brighter. 
Also, the sun is warm and the rain is not.
Another reason the sun is better than the rain is because you can play outside in it.
This is why I believe the sun is better than the rain. 
 
Now your turn-which is better 
Chocolate or crisps?
