Today we are introducing a ‘remote learning’ project for you to complete.

This will be done in Friday’s reading sessions over the next few weeks.

Have a read through the poster and have a think about how you would like to complete the project. Once you’ve read through the poster – watch Mr. Michaud’s video as an example of what’s expected!

**For today’s task – please set up a ‘Friday – Video Project’ page in your OneNote and copy across the table below.** **You are to start brainstorming ideas for your project and how you might present it. **

## Writing

**TASK 1:** Use the pictures above to help you brainstorm arguments for and against the issue “Should Primary School Students Have to Wear School Uniform?”. Use the table below to **list your arguments in your own OneNote (Remote Learning-Writing-Week 4-Monday). **Once you have listed your arguments **pick the side with the strongest arguments **

FOR | AGAINST |

**We will choose the best 5 that you come up with on both sides tomorrow. *

*You will earn $$$ if your argument is chosen!!!**

**STATISTICS: **

**Statistics ** - statistics are facts that include** numbers**. Use a statistic in your example and supporting details.

**Firstly, everyone should own a dog because they need exercise. For instance, if you have a dog you will have to walk your dog every day, which means that you will be even healthier. ****Dog owners walk an average of 300 minutes per week, while non-dog owners walk an average of 168 minutes. **

**Task 2: Find at least one of the statistics below that matches one of your arguments from last week’s persuasive and add it in. (Feel free to change the wording)**
