Write Persuasively

Dear Humans,

I am a African elephant from a plain. I am writing for peace not just for me, for the whole of the elephants. Life, which was peaceful eating the grass, lying in the sweltering sun, until you came along!!

Coming, with your guns hunting us down, it’s not fair! How would you like it, if we tried to hunt you down and kill you?  We can’t enjoy life, we spend most of our days wondering when it is our turn to be hunted and perished.


Also, how could you take all our Ivory? we have grown it for years, it is part of us ot a possesion or a favourite toy it is a limb, something we feel. How could you kill us? The fact you are taking our ivory is bad enough!

Luckily, I  have not experienced this tragedy yet. Unfortunately, my family is not so lucky, so on behalf of all the elephants  not just me, please stop butchering us!!!

Guy Fawkes

This week, Year 6 have been learning about Guy Fawkes. We learnt why he tried to blow up the houses of parliament. He tried to blow up the houses of parliament because the King wanted catholics to go to certain churches and he didn’t like them.

Guy Fawkes  and 12 other men (who were catholics) decided to try to blow up the king. But Guy Fawkes didn’t come up with the plan. It was a man named Robert Catesby the guys called him The Brains!
