  1. Good afternoon Mrs Ahmed, I have done the work and I have sent it to the share point. I liked doing the poster about medusa and writting some facts about her.

  2. Mini Task
    The features I see that are in the wanted poster consist of the following:
    A title
    multiple paragraphs
    Different forms of punctuation
    Description of Medusa
    Persuasive language
    Specifying (like what she’s wanted for)
    And what she is wanted for
    Main Task
    —————————WANTED FOR 50,000 DRACHMA———————–
    ————————————DEAD OR ALIVE————————————-
    ——————————-MEDUSA THE GORGON——————————-
    Medusa is a gorgon with snake hair, with the ability to look you in your eyes and turn all flesh on a body into stone in whatever position you stood in, all because IT was cursed from the goddess of war, handicraft and practical reason ATHENA or ATHENE. All because Medusa broke her vow of celibacy. She turned Medusa into a hideous hag.

  3. The features I can see are:

    Persuade language.
