Persuasive Writing- Persuasive arguments based on fairytales.

Based on the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.


Do you think Goldilocks should or shouldn't have entered the Bears' house?


We've all heard of the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bear, well do you think Goldilocks should of entered the house? I think Goldilocks shouldn't of.

Firstly, Goldilocks shouldn't of entered the Three Bears house because she ate Baby Bear's porridge. She shouldn't of eaten his food without permission.

Secondly, Goldilocks shouldn't of entered the Three Bears house without permission. When Goldilocks walked inside the house she made the Three Bears very angry because she kept touching everything.

Finally, Goldilocks shouldn't of entered the Three Bears house because when she sat on Baby Bears chair she broke it. and Baby Bear is sad now and has no chair. 


So that's why I think Goldilocks shouldn't of entered the Three Bears house becuase she ate their porridge, made the Bear's angry because she entered their house and she ended up making Baby Bear angry and cry by breaking Baby Bear's chair.

By Mia

We all know the story of  Goldilocks and the Three Bear, do you think Goldilocks should of entered the house? Well I think Goldilocks should of goe inside the house.

Firstly, it was raining and Goldilocks was lost in the forest she needed somewhere dry and the front door of the house was left wide open.

Secondly, Goldilocks was so hungry she couldn't help but eat the porridge and she didn't mean to break Bay Bear's chair, it was an accident.

Thirdly, Goldilocks was so tired after walking in the forest. She was going to explain herself but the Bears scared her so she ran away.

I hope I have convinced you that Goldilocks should have entered the Three Bear's house.

Based on the story of Jack and the beanstalk.


Do you think Jack should or shouldn't have climbed the beanstalk and entered the Giant's castle?


We've all heard of the story of Jack and the beanstalk, well Jack shouldn't of climbed the beanstalk being his was stealing, greedy and didn't ask permission.

Firstly, stealing is wrong! Stealing is against the law and people can get very angry when you steal from them.

Secondly, Jack was not thinking properly. Jack started getting selfish and greedy each time he  climbed the beanstalk.

Lastly, Jack should not have been in the castle anyway because it's someone else's house and he didn't have permission.

Jack shouldn't of climbed the beanstalk in the first place!

By Dylan


We all like fairytales like Jack and the beanstalk, I believe that shouldn't of climbed the beanstalk do you?

Firstly, Jack was stealing from the giant. Jack shouldn't of climbed the beanstalk because he stole the gold coins, the hen and harp and stealing is wrong.

Secondly, Jack is greedy. Jack thinks the giant had too much stuff in his castle so everyday he began to steal more.

Lastly, Jack promised not to steal things and when he did he chopped down the beanstalk and the giant fell down and died and that was all Jack's fault!

That's why Jack shouldn't of climbed the beanstalk because Jack stole the Giant's things, Jack was greedy and he caused the giants death.
