Reading Task

Writing Task

Today’s writing challenge is to write about the best day you have ever had.  What did you do?  Why was it your best day? Who was with you? When was it? If you can’t think of a best day that you have actually had, write about what would be your best day.


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 some of the 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 story or type it straight onto the document below.
