This week students in Grade 3 have been working on their persuasive writing. Students have been developing their understanding of the structure and language we use when persuading someone!
We looked at “Would You Rather” questions. One question was
“Would you rather live in Antarctica or the International Space Station?” Jodi decided she would rather live in the International Space Station because you get to see the Earth, we don’t know enough about outer space and that it would be cool to float around.
We have a huge display of the students persuasive writing pieces on “Why You Should Attend Templestowe Valley Primary School” outside our rooms. Please come along and be convinced you have sent your child to the right school!
Here are two of the students writing pieces:
We all agree that you should attend TVPS. It’s a big school located in Lower Templestowe Victoria. Girls and boys aged 5-12 years old can attend this school. My three reasons are it’s a safe school, it has extra events and it’s a happy place to be.
Firstly, you should send your child to TVPS because it is a safe school. All the teachers are nice, we have caring students, we have cameras everywhere and we have a lot of gates so your child will not get lost.
Secondly, we have extra events mostly sporting events like PE, Hooptime, Swimming, Cross Country and lunchtime tennis. Also we have a lot of excursions when we just basically learn in a fun way and the same as incursions.
Finally, it’s a happy place to be. We have all sorts of fun activities, also really yummy canteen food. We also have really cool playgrounds and you will always have someone to play with and you will make new friends really quick.
I have just proved to you that you should send your child to Templestowe Valley Primary School because I told you it’s a safe school, we have extra events and it’s a happy place to be.
I strongly think you should attend Templestowe Valley Primary School. T.V.P.S. is a boy and girl school. It is a school in the Eastern suburbs. I am going to give you three reasons to send your child to this school. It’s a safe school, it has fantastic classrooms and lovely school grounds.
Firstly, your child should attend Templestowe Valley Primary School because it’s a safe school. We do a lot of emergency practices in case a stranger comes in. If there is no crossing man our principal Mr Renshaw will do it. There are loud speakers in case a fire or there is a lock down. Mr Renshaw has a secret space where he keeps things we might need.
Secondly, your child should attend Templestowe Valley Primary School because we have fantastic classrooms. It has lots of displays that can help you with your work. Everyone’s lovely work goes up on display. Everybody that goes to this school always take pride in all the activities that they do.
Thirdly, your child should attend Templestowe Valley Primary School because it is a lovely school. There is a lovely oval with a soccer field and a football field too. There is are really good playgrounds. Near the back of the school there is a place called Rocky Mountain that you can play on.
That is why your child should attend Templestowe Valley Primary School because it’s a safe school, it has fantastic classrooms and lovely school grounds.
