Good morning everyone,
Below are some activity choices for this week:
Option 1 (daily activity) – Early Level
Writing lower and uppercase letters
Ask an adult to shout out all lowercase letters and write them down.
How many can you manage without looking?
If you are feeling confident then move on to uppercase letters.
Option 2 (week long activity) – First Level and beyond
You are going to create your own diary. First, research some famous dairies, e.g. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank – google an excerpt to look at the format (how it is laid out).
Now, it’s your turn!
Create your own personal diary and design the front cover which should reflect your personality.
Every day make a diary entry that explains the events and experiences of your day.
The key features of a diary are explained below:
- describes the places where events happened
- is written in the past tense
- talks about the most important events
- uses some personal pronouns: I, we, my, me
- talks about feelings
- uses time conjunctions (e.g. before, next, after) to show when things happened.
Try to think about your choice of words to make your writing more interesting by using adverbs and adjectives.
An adverb – a word that describes a verb (an action or doing word). E.g. I ate (verb) my breakfast slowly (adverb).
An adjective – a word that describes a noun (the name of a thing or place). E.g. I played a fun (adjective) game (noun).
Option 3 (browse the web)
Explore one or more of the following websites to find something of interest and benefit to you:
