Hi everyone! Hope you are all well and that your mums enjoyed their Mother's Day cards and poems.

 

This week I would like you all to begin writing in your diaries! Remember that you can personalise your diary and be as creative as you like. You may include drawings, annotations, photos but, most importantly, your thoughts and feelings about your daily life.

Feel free to change the cover of your diary or even add a picture.

I have linked other English challenges this week to our diary writing:

 

Reading

Read the diary entries of George Bramwell (aged 14) who wrote about his experiences during World War 2. Try to answer the questions based on the text. 

Remember that we agreed that any English tasks would be done at the back of your red booklet and your diary entries would be at the front.

Extracts from the diary of George Bramwell

Writing

I would like you to begin writing in your diaries this week. Try to write at least three or four diary entries per week. We have been learning, recently, about Anne Frank and have read some of the diary entries she made whilst in hiding. Here are some suggestions for your diary:

  • you could write about your new daily routine.
  • what are your thoughts on 'home schooling'?
  • what adjustments have your family made?
  • how are you spending time outdoors?
  • have you learnt any new skills?
  • are you keeping in touch with your friends?

You may even want to give your diary a name. Remember that Anne named her diary 'Kitty' and when she wrote, she used a 'chatty' tone as if she were talking to a friend.

Spellings

Here are this week's spellings:

  • partial
  • confidential
  • essential
  • substantial
  • torrential
  • sequential
  • potential
  • spatial
  • martial
  • influential

 

The words in red are the Write Words spellings.

Write each word in a sentence and ask your parents to test you at the end of the week.
