Your reading challenge for today is a choice - yes, a choice!
See the document below for the choice of activities that you could choose to do based on the text that you have been reading this week, The Octopus.
Your writing task for today is to write a diary entry.
Write a diary entry about a day spent in social isolation because of corona virus. You can write an actual diary entry of one of your days. But you don’t have to tell the truth. If you want, you can use your imagination and make things up. What? You were transported to another planet? A portal opened up and you went into another world? Wow!
In your writing, make sure you are trying to use the Year 5 skills that we have learned this year. You could use:
- a drop-in clause to add extra detail to your sentences
- figurative language (similes, metaphors, personification, onomatopoeia, alliteration) to exaggerate your strange story
- a variety of different sentence starters to make your story interesting (ISPACE sentence starters are a good place to start)
- Can you use one of the following Year 5 and 6 spelling words?
Good Luck! Send us your completed pieces of writing, we would love to read them! We will give you some pointers on how you could make your story even better. You could hand-write your diary entry or type it straight onto the document below.
