    Hi all
    For my final literacy topic next half-term with my Year 5s I'm doing discussion texts.
    We always 'kick off' a new literacy topic with a blind writing assignment for levelling. Has anybody got any good ideas for getting the creative juices flowing? I was thinking about topics such as Smoking, Junk Food and Exercise? Then I was going tochoose one, have a bit of debating to get ideas going then get them writing. Any thoughts appreciated!
    Thanks
