Year 6 - Lake District Leaflets

Class 6, at Our Lady and St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School - Maryport, have been learning about the Lake District this term. They have explored the natural landscape, the effects of tourism and delved into the hidden gems that the Lake District has to offer us, as residents, and visitors alike.

They were set the challenge to write a persuasive leaflet encouraging those interested to visit this incredibly beautiful part of the world. We discussed the importance of descriptive language and how it has the power to create an image in the readers mind leaving them yearning for more.

‘The mist rests softly on the mountain peaks like a blanket draped over a baby. The sun tries to break through the clouds as you trek through tall, green grass, wet with morning dew.’

Both myself (Miss Nattrass – Year 6 Class Teacher) and the children, would love it if you would take some time to read their unbelievable advertisements. They are tremendously proud of them and rightly so too! Let us know what you think! Here are a few examples…
