Kakapo, Woodlands Full Primary School, Year 4-6
During Term 3 Kakapo Room experimented with persuasive writing. The main learning intentions were to:
Work cooperatively in groups to brainstorm ideas and create a commercial.
Gain knowledge of the different strategies that are used in effective persuasive writing.
Use a graphic organizer to help them begin organizing their ideas into written form.
Analyze the work of others to see if it contains effective persuasive techniques.
Use a variety of ICT skills and effects to create their commercial.
The children had to design and create an original product that was a combination of two already existing products ie jeans and leggings = jeggings. After coming up with their product each group planned their script, shots and movie effects on a storyboard. There were many valuable skills learnt in creating their commercials and the children were extremely proud of their results.We had a lot of ideas but we wanted to create something that hadn’t already been invented. Then our group started to talk about clothing because we love fashion. It was winter when we started talking about our product so we thought of something that would keep you warm and comfy. So we thought about a glove purse – a glove and a purse together.
To make our ad we used FX guru, I movie, camera, auto rap, animation and word doc. We had to take many shots with our acting and loved adding special effects with FX guru. The animation took a long time to film and auto rap was great fun.
