Persuasive writing in Year 2


This week in English in Year 2 we have been looking at the story of The Little Mermaid. After listening to the story we all agreed we would really like a pet fish so we decided to write letters to Mrs Hopkins to try and persuade her to let us have a pet. We included persuasive language, time connectives and questions to impress her with our learning.

Just look at some of our fantastic writing!

We really do work hard in our English lessons!


We have also created pictures of mermaids with fish to show Mrs Hopkins just how amazing we are in Year 2.


We are hoping Mrs Hopkins liked our persuasive letters and pictures and we are waiting to find out if we can have a pet fish. Do you like our letters? Do you think we deserve a pet fish?
