Exaggeration makes everything bigger, better, and a lot more exciting. Students in Room 3 have been learning to use hyperbole (exaggeration) in their writing. The writing genre that we are focusing on is persuasive writing.
The writing task was to persuade the reader that Wairakei Primary School is the best school.
Surprise, surprise, Mrs Farquhar really liked Room 3’s stories about why “Wairakei Primary School is so amazing”. She encouraged us to make them into a blog to share.
