John Clifford Primary & Nursery School ‘Be your best. Celebrate success. Together we will be successful.’

Friday 9th October 2020

Good morning, everyone!


Your task today is start gathering together some arguments against slavery for our letters which we are going to be writing next week.  I have photographed an extract from our Class Novel that we have been reading this half term in which Olaudah Equiano states several reasons as to why slavery should be abolished.  I have summarised these to support you.  You should also draw on your learning from your topic lessons yesterday.  To support you further in this, I have also supplied you with some other arguments by other key abolitionists.  Your task is to generate a list of arguments against slavery and then, using the persuasive letter vocabulary word mat, write at least 3 sentences containing some of your arguments.  I have provided some examples to get you started.
