Wednesday

Today's learning is taken from BBC Bitesize. All of the learning, videos and activities can be found at www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z7s22sg/year-2-and-p3-lessons.

 

English

Today you'll practise your creative writing skills by taking part in the National Writing Day 24/7 writing challenge. Start by reading through the 24/7 challenge and the 'Learn' section.

 

Activity 1

Think about a day in your life which was really amazing. It might be a birthday or a day spent with a friend, for example.

Write down three things you remember about that day. Make sure you use capital letters and punctuation correctly.

Here is an example:
The sun was shining.
I ate a strawberry ice cream.
My friend Jay was pushing me on the swings.

Once you've written your sentences, write three words that describe how you felt that day.

For example: Happy, excited, calm.

 

Activity 2

Now you’re ready to take on the 24/7 challenge!

You’re going to use the ideas you came up with in Activity 1 to create your own brilliant short story!

For example:
One day, the sun was shining.
I ate a strawberry ice cream.
My friend Jay, push me on the swings and I felt happy.

Remember:

  • Your story should only be 24 words long.

  • It should start with the words ‘One day’.

  • It should be written in 7 minutes. Set yourself a timer!

Top tip!

The most important thing is to have fun! This is about trying something new and enjoying writing creatively. Don’t worry if you make mistakes, just have a go!

 

Want to continue writing?

Now that you've completed the National Writing Day challenge, you could have a go at writing an even longer story.

Most longer stories have a beginning, a middle and an end.

  • In the beginning, you establish your setting and characters.
  • In the middle, you could add conflict and a problem to solve.
  • At the end there could be a dramatic rescue. The ending could be happy or sad.
