New: Whole School Diary Challenge!Back
- You don’t have to do it every day, but the more often you do, the greater chance you have or more of your work appearing in the collated diary (we might have 20 amazing accounts from Wednesday 25th March and wouldn’t be able to include them all necessarily!).
- It is a chance to practise all those English skills you have been learning! Children should focus on trying to include some of the elements of grammar, punctuation and style that they have been taught this year – see the ‘Timetable of activities’ documents on the ‘Learning at home’ page on the school website for some key elements each year group should focus on.
- If you are too young to write a diary entry or find writing particularly tricky, we would still love you to take part – you can take photos and ask a grown-up to help you write a couple of sentences about them or perhaps photograph some creative work you have produced.
- Write the date each time you start a new diary entry so that we know which day you are writing about.
- Write about funny or interesting things that have happened to you that day – what have you enjoyed? How are you feeling?
- Make sure that what you write is true! Your diary should be an accurate account please!
Here’s a short example of how you could lay your diary entry out:
Following the session, I went out into the garden and recorded a video message for the school Instagram feed – it’s so weird not seeing the children and I know all of the staff really miss them. Let’s hope we can get back to normal life really soon! I know it’s probably quite fun for most people at the moment, but I have a feeling it might get boring soon if we don’t think or some interesting things for the children to do.
