Some of the lessons use 'VCOP' to help the children with their writing. VCOP stands for Vocabulary, Conjunctions, Openers and Punctuation. You can adapt these lessons to use a different method of helping the children with their writing if you wish.
The grammar lessons (9, 14 and 18) are generic, rather than focused on being persuasive.
