Homework Set: 23/11/17


Write a short diary entry


This week in literacy we have been thinking about how to write a diary. We have looked at writing a diary from the perspective of a character in a film.

Have a go at writing a diary entry for your weekend. It can be about this weekend or it can be a made up or past event. Try to make sure the diary entry contains:

  • A date as a title

  • Is written in first person (I , my etc.)

  • Past tense

  • In chronological order (Time order)

  • Contains time connectives (e.g. then, next, afterwards)

  • Feelings and emotions.




Extension :    Edit your work. Add two adverbs. Re-write one sentence changing its order. E.g. I walked downstairs calmly only to find my sister had eaten all the cornflakes. -> Calmly, I walked downstairs only to find my sister had eaten all the cornflakes.
