LEARNING to make a difference

Week 1

Writing Activity

Task 1


Choose a day from your Easter Holiday and write a diary entry.


For example: Sunday 12th April

Today is Easter Sunday I got up at 9.30 and had my breakfast.

Then I went out for a lovely walk with my family. The sun was shining and I felt really happy to be outside in the fresh air. I saw lots of people out walking their dogs or riding their bikes.

Next I ate one of my yummy Easter eggs and watched a movie.


Task 2


Imagine you are going for a walk and discover this pathway. Describe what you might find at the other side. Include how you are feeling when you get there.

 One hot sunny day I came across a secret path and decided to walk along it to see where it led to. I had been walking for a while when suddenly …


Can you finish off the story?

Remember to include capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

Also try to include some interesting adjectives, verbs and adverbs.


Adjectives describe nouns – e.g. a magnificent castle.

Verbs are action words – e.g. I kicked the ball.

Adverbs describe how the action is being done – e.g. I quickly kicked the ball.



Task 3

It's 1666 and Vlad the flea and his friend Boxton the rat, love eating and biting their way around London. But one night in Pudding Lane they are caught up in a fire that threatens to destroy them, along with most of the City of London.
