Discursive writing brain storm... In literacy we are looking at discursive writing. The children worked in groups to brain storm ideas both for and against a series of statements on contentious issues. The children will use these rough ideas sheets in both practical and written exercises over the coming week
We have been thinking about the types of things some children might worry about. Hypothetical worries that might never happen are useless thoughts. Real worries are more likely to be useful thoughts, for which we can make a plan to reduce our feelings of worry.
