YEAR 6

We are currently writing texts associated with our topic, ‘Don’t cry for me… Argentina!”  This term, the children have created a persuasive leaflet for ‘The Grand Buenos Aires Hotel’, to encourage both tourists and local residents to stay. We have also written diary entries of a young traveller who is visiting the hotel as part of a holiday.

Can you write further diary entries about the traveller’s time in Argentina?  Can you write about visiting Iguazu Falls?  The following websites offer some information on these infamous waterfalls:
