Chapter 7 - Lord Spittleworth Tells tales
Today I would like you to read chapter 7. I have read chapter 6 for you and this is on today's home page.
After you have caught up and read chapter 7, I would like you to think about Lord Spittleworth. Make some predictions about why you think he doesn't like children. Perhaps he finds them annoying or they are too noisy, or maybe its a personal reason like he secretly wants children of his own but he can't have them because he doesn't have a wife. Whatever the reason, I would like you to make an argument for him and persuade me and convince me why children should be banished from the palace courtyards. Think about the events in Chapter 7 and how this might persuade the king.
You need to log onto purple mash, find your 2do called 'banish from the courtyard' and begin writing to convince me. You need to use:
- Persuasive vocabulary (e.g. 'Surely, you can see how peaceful it might be without children around' or 'Consider how calm and sophisticated the palace grounds will feel')
- Use evidence to support your argument (what reasons are there for banishing the children?)
- Compliments to the king to attempt to affect his decision.
- Paragraphs (perhaps for different reasons as to why children should be banished)
I look forward to reading your reasons and hearing your persuasive vocabulary!
