Writing

This week, there are two different activities for you to have a go at! Make sure you have a look at both!

 

The first activity for you to try is creating an "I wish..." poem.

 

Wishes- what would you wish for?

 

Wishes are great fun to explore. We all wish for many things each day.

 

Whether it be for the sun to keep shining or for Boris to tell us we can return to school .... !!

 

We would love you to have a go at writing an 'I wish ... list poem. Look at the examples of list poems below that other children have written.

 

Try to remember to use the checklist below to help you write an amazing  poem

 

Adventurous vocabulary

Use the five senses

Can you ask a question?

Interesting adjectives to create a clear image in your readers mind

Similes

Alliteration (words starting with the same letter)

 

We look forward to reading all about your wishes this week!

Who inspires you?

 

For the second part of this week, we would like you to think about what inspiration means.

Inspiring people come in all shapes and sizes: from WW2 veterans to NHS workers, to brothers and sisters or a neighbour or elderly relative. Perhaps the person that inspires you is a historial figure, or perhaps it is somebody who you know today. There are many amazing people all around us doing heroic things.

 

Can you think of someone who inspires you?

 

This week Primary League Premier Stars have a challenge for you to draw a wonderful picture of a person who inspires you and to write about why you admire them. When you have finished, you could send it to them and brighten up their day! But don't forget to send it to us as well! 

 

Why not even write a letter to the nurses/doctors and staff at the NHS- especially as this Tuesday marks International Nurses Day (have a look at our Topic page)!.

 

See the attached document below for more details.
