Hello Year 4!

 

How are you? We are doing well, but really missing you all – the classrooms are quiet and lifeless. Honestly, we can’t wait to have you back into school to fill this place with the buzz, joy and sparkle that each of you bring.

 

Now that we are back in the school building, we have decided to create weekly learning packs for you which can be used alongside your Purple Mash work.

ENGLISH TASK - DIARY ENTRY

Hello Year 4!

    Hope you are well. This week’s English task is to write a diary entry about life during the ‘lockdown’. The reality is, that our lives now will soon be part of History. Although this may be hard to imagine, YOUR grandchildren will probably be learning about the Coronavirus when they are at school, they will be studying it’s impact on the lives of people around the world, just like you have been learning about the Romans and Vikings! Wouldn’t it be amazing if in years to come, when future historians look to write the story of life during this pandemic, your first-person diary entries were found and used as primary evidence? Just imagine, you are making history!

 

Below is an example of Mrs Kermalli’s daughter Zahra’s diary entry. First, she wrote a draft and ‘purple-polished’ it to make sure that it made sense and was punctuated well. Finally, she wrote it up in best to include in her ‘2020 scrapbook’.

 

We look forward to reading your entries, you could include pictures too!

 

When writing, don’t forget to think about the following:

 

  • Include a date and begin with ‘Dear Diary,’
  • Write in first person using ‘I’
  • Write about events in the order in which they happened – chronological order
  • Include your feelings about what is happening
  • Punctuate your writing well (full stops, capital letters, ?,  ! and commas)
  • Use time connectives and adverbials such as: first, next, later that day…
  • Use a range of conjunctions to link your sentences (and, but, because, or, since, while, after etc…)

 

Best of luck and please remember to send them in for us to enjoy!

 

Love,

Year 4 Teachers.
