The Language of Persuasion
Gather a range of products from around the home and study the language.
Which words and phrases have been used to encourage you to buy the products? You could also watch TV adverts for different products and consider the language of persuasion used by sellers.
Can you create an advert for a product in your house or a new product that you have designed, making it as persuasive as possible?
Which words and phrases will you include to make someone want to buy?
Share with friends and family – can you persuade them to buy your product?  
All about Character
Place yourself in the shoes of one of the characters you have just read about and write a diary entry of a key moment from the story.
Try to choose a moment in the story in which the character has plenty of interaction and emotion to share in a diary entry.
Your diary entry should be around a page in length and contain information you learnt from the book when the character was in that specific place and time.
Remember, when you are writing a diary entry you are writing it from first person perspective. It is usually, but not always, written in present tense.
You could try to ensure you are using informal words and phrases and include some parenthesis and adverbials to add extra detail. 

Colomendy Residential
Last term, pupils had an amazing time when they went on residential to Colomendy - North Wales.
Colomendy is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in beautiful woodland with views of Moel Famau.
Pupils had the opportunity to push themselves to the limits whilst participating in high-intensity activities, including a high ropes course woven amongst the trees.  
Pupils loved their experience and were extremely saddened to come home!
Please go to The Gallery to see more pictures from our fabulous residential!
