Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

You've got to be in it, to win it!

We came across the following challenge in the Kent Messenger newspaper:

One lucky pupil will become the boss of Whitefriars Canterbury shopping centre for a day with an exciting new writing competition.

To enter, all children need to do is write a letter to their best friend persuading them to join in the walk to school. The piece of work must be hand written on a special activity sheet called ‘The Power of Persuasion’. 

Entries must be received by Monday, 11 December.

Of course we just had to give it a go.  Across the whole of Year 5 we have been writing some incredibly persuasive letters, in our very best handwriting ready for the competition.  We'll be sending them off early next week.  Fingers crossed!

Enjoy reading two of our persuasive letters below;
