Miss Murphy Hand Delivered Our Letters to the Prime Minister


In light of our Inquiry topic ‘Who Lived Here First?’ our class wrote letters to Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull outlining reasons as to why we should change the Australian flag mainly because the flag does not represent all Australians especially the Indigenous Australians. This morning our teacher got to hand deliver our letters! It was a pleasure to meet you Prime Minister Turnbull and we thank you for your time for reading our letters and we await your reply!

Mother’s Day Tea


Yesterday, to celebrate Mother’s Day we invited all of our mums, grandmums, aunties and teachers to spoil them with manicures, massages, serve them food and beverages and flower them with gifts. We made them magazines with sketched portraits of our special guests and we wrote a persuasive texts explaining why they are the best in the world outlining 3 reasons why they are so fabulous, we wrote also wrote them poems, jokes and created word searches with adjectives that describe them and last but not least we painted and had sewn them pillows. It was a blast and we were so happy that so many of our special people in our lives came to our Mother’s Day Tea. Thank you to all those who made some time in your busy day to come to our event because it meant a lot to us. We love you all!!

Pyjama Day and Pizza Day Fun



On Tuesday our class had a Pizza Party to celebrate achieving our reading to read 1000 books by December! And we’ve already read more than 1100 and it’s only the beginning of Term 2! the pizza was delicious… We ate 10 boxes of the yummy pizza!! Super star reading 3/4M! I’m so proud of you!

We also have been learning about writing awesome persuasive pieces and we decided to write our principal a persuasive letter to allow our class have a pyjama day!! It was an epic day!!

Thanks to our special helpers Ms Dawn and Mr Hall for helping to make our day even better! 😊

Do OREOs help you to write your persuasive texts? What other techniques can you use to help make your persuasive text strong?

Persuasive Adverts


In our class we have been looking at adverts as another example of persuasive text. A book that we have been reading in our literacy rotations, ‘This Ad’s for You’ by Andrew Einspruch, we learnt that it is estimated that most people see over 3,000 adverts each day, such as on billboards, in magazines or the recognizable words or symbols that companies use to help sell their products. Here are some more adverts that you might see on tv.


What are these adverts trying to persuade you to do? How are they trying to persuade you? Did they use any persuasive techniques?
