Amazing Fashion Show

As part of their learning in Literacy Class 6 did some persuasive writing.

In addition to writing persuasive letters, they worked hard in groups to design and create the Ultimate Alternative School Uniform. This gave the children a perfect opportunity to hone their communication skills whilst allowing their creativity and self-expression to run wild! They also wrote detailed style commentaries to persuade an audience (made up of their parents, grandparents and carers) to choose their design.

Their efforts culminated in a fashion show extravaganza during which the children modelled their alternative school uniform; read aloud their style commentaries; took photographs or interviewed the audience (asking for their thoughts and comments) which were then used in newspaper reports the following week.

The event was a huge success and our fashionistas wowed the audience with their confidence, self-belief and creativity, as these photographs show!

We are reading Oliver Twist in class and have recreated some atmospheric scenes from the book by studying descriptions in the text and researching Victorian London with Lydia from Young Animators.
