5th Class were learning about advertising this week. They discussed what makes a good ad e.g. Bold lettering, font type, famous people, colour, pictures etc. They realise that adverts can be a powerful form of persuasion convincing people to buy a certain product or think a certain way. 5th Class understand that advertising can make a person think they need a product and must get it.
The students then created their own sweet product independently and made their own poster advert. After voting for their favorite product created within their group, they worked together to make an advert for it.
Next week, linking with exposition writing, the students will be writing a piece about whether it is ethical to target young children and teenagers when advertising sugar.
