Koru 2 Assembly Performance

Image
We listened to the  book the The True Story of the Three Little Pigs  a children's book by Jon Scieszkaand Lane Smith. Using this we had to decide the side we would take, the wolf or the pigs. We then wrote a persuasive piece of writing arguing for our chosen viewpoint. This play was adapted from the many different viewpoints we came up with as a class. Notice some of the persuasive language features used to convey the messages in our court of law!

Look at Dylan's amazing pattern!
