(Approx. 30 mins – 10 min teaching video, 20 mins activity)

  • Watch Oak Academy video with Miss Doherty (10mins) ‘Lesson 2: To map and speak a persuasive piece’


  • Join in with the nursery rhyme.
  • Map your own ideas like Miss Doherty’s – use simple pictures to record your ideas of how you are going to persuade someone to buy your gingerbread! Keep this safe for the rest of the week.
  • If you are finding making your own map tricky, you could use Miss Doherty’s to help you, or persuade someone to buy your gingerbread by using Miss Doherty’s map – it is available in resources.
  • Rather than watching Miss Doherty re-tell her persuasive speech – can you retell yours to your teddy talk partner, or a family member – remember to use you map to help you!
