LO: to create a persuasive poster


Click on the link to watch the story again.  Your task today is to create a persuasive poster to entice customers into The Little Shoemaker’s shop.  You will need to use the writing skills which you learnt a few weeks ago for your persuasive letter writing.  In addition, think back to when you designed a persuasive poster to advertise pet trampolines and use the skills you learnt in that lesson too.  I expect to see exciting and enticing vocabulary.   Make your poster striking and eye-catching.  Please send your finished poster to me.

There is a link for the pre-printed sheet if you would like to use it.  Please send your finished retrieval answers to me.
