Home Learning – Monday 1st March 2021

Good morning! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend 🙂

Phonics: This week we have two sounds to finish off our Set 3 sounds. When you return to school we will then spend our time recapping any sounds from Set 2 and Set 3 that we may still find a little tricky.

Today’s sound that we will focus on is ear – hear with your ear


Literacy: LO: As a writer, I will be able to plan and write a diary entry.

A reminder of our story Fancy Dress Jungle if you want to hear it again – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zi_3DABjYao&t=33s

Show teaching slides about writing diary entries – Diary Writing slides

Overview of what is covered on the slides – When you write a diary entry, you are writing about a day in the life of a real person or character. The diary entry needs to sound as if the person or character has written it, so it needs to be written from their point of view. It also needs to be exciting and interesting to read. To get this right, just follow a few easy steps…

  • Include date/time
  • Written in past tense
  • Use the words ‘I’, ‘my’, ‘we’ and ‘our’
  • Write as if you were there
  • Important events in order
  • Describe feelings
  • Use time linking words, e.g. ‘next’, ‘first’ and ‘then’
  • Talk about where events happened.

Activity: Plan and write a diary entry from the point of view of the pop star lion. Have a think about what the Lion could have got up to during the day. Use your imagination and write it as a diary entry.

If you need a little more support: Use this template – Diary template

Once you have finished your diary: Use the checklist to ensure you have included all of the diary features – Diary Writing Checklist
