Today you will be writing a diary entry. 

Watch this video. It tells the story of The Enormous Pumpkin.

In this story a farmer plants seeds in a field and waits to see what will grow. She falls asleep and on waking finds the most enormous pumpkin!

Think carefully about  the farmer's actions and feelings.

Here's a checklist of the key features to use when you write a diary entry.

  • Start with 'Dear Diary’.
  • Describe the places where the events happened.
  • Write in the past tense.
  • Use pronouns like I, my and me to show that the events happened to you.
  • Talk about how you were feeling or what you were thinking when each event happened

Task : Imagine you are the farmer planting the seeds  and write her diary entry for the day.

To help you there is an example of a diary entry attached below which might give you some inspiration for your own writing.There is also a planning sheet and template to use if you wish. You can write your diary entry straight into your book too.

Today we are going to create a digital collage on the computer or if you prefer you can create a traditional one using paper and different types of materials.

A collage is a work of art made by gluing pieces of different types of materials to a flat surface.

The theme is Plants. It is up to you how you wish to do it. You may wish to create a collage of a plant/flower using different types of materials. Or create a collage using pictures of flowers and plants you have found eg in magazines ,printed from the computer.

You might create your collage using a word document by finding pictures on the computer of flowers and  trees and arranging them on you page by overlapping ,rotating, resizing them.

The choice is yours , as long as the collage has a flower/ plant theme!
