Week 5 - Main Activity


Discussion Starters


Use these discussion starters to create a piece of writing (debate, persuasion or even use these as inspiration for a new story!)



Example: ‘Would it be a good thing to be famous?

  1. You could start by writing a list of positive and negative reasons to be famous
  2. Talk to someone else about the topic. What do they think?
  3. Write a debate about the two points of view.


Before you start writing, why don’t you discuss the speech bubble topic with someone else first? They may help you see more than one point of view to help you form your viewpoint when writing.


If you need a reminder about how to write a debate or a persuasive piece of writing then have a look at the posters below!

Professor Plum wiped his weary eyes; only the excitement of finally finishing the potion kept him awake. Just a few more hours, then it would be ready…
