Junior Dragons’ Den

Years 3 and 4 recently took part in a ‘Dragons’ Den’ style mission where, with a partner, they designed their own chocolate bar and an advert to persuade the ‘dragons’ that their chocolate was the most creative and tasty chocolate bar. They spent time learning about different persuasive techniques, including using sophisticated language such as ‘tantalising’ and ‘astonishing’, as well as using rhetorical questions. Once they had planned their advert, the partners pitched their idea to the four ‘dragons’, who were Ms Barnard, Mrs Demetriou, Mrs Beeson and Mr Grant. They all presented their chocolate bars very confidently and the four ‘dragons’ were very impressed with the variety of creative ideas!
