It is World Book Day! Today we would like you to concentrate on books and your writing task is linked to your reading. We would like you to choose any book to read. This could be a book that you have at home, or one on Oxford Reading Buddy.
Read the book of your choice and then you are going to write a book review. A book review is your opinion of the book. You need to think about how much you liked the book and your favourite part. Please write in a full sentence with a capital letter and a full stop. You will also need to write the title and the author (remember the author is the person who wrote the book). Have fun with this activity and send us your completed work to firstname.lastname@example.org

Well done to all of you fantastic writers! The stories you have sent us have been fun to read. We wish we were in school to do story writing but you have done so well at home. Today is a finishing up session. Some of you may need to go back to yesterday's lesson to have a look and finish up your writing.
If you have finished- let's do some editing!
Read your story with a grown up at home and see if you have missed anything out. You may want to add in a little bit more. Check that you have used capital letters and full stops and that your handwriting is nice and tidy.
Then, draw some pictures to go with your story. Books often have an illustrator. That is someone who draws pictures to go with the book. Can you draw one, two or three pictures to go with your story?
Here are some from the original story as an example.

We hope you all wrote your first two event sentences yesterday and remembered to include how you felt about what you did too! How did you get up into space? Did you remember to use the word 'first' for your first event sentence?
Today we are going to write our last two key events, so before you write on your final diary entry, have a go at writing down your ideas of what you may include for your last two sentences.
For example what did you see in space when you looked out of the window? Stars, planets, meteors, shooting stars, another spacecraft, satellites?
And when you finally got to the moon, what did it look like? rocky, bumpy? Could you hear anything or was it silent?
Please remember to include how you felt about these two events too. Maybe even try and use the connective word 'and' to make your sentence longer. Please also try and use some adjectives to describe what you saw eg the twinkling stars.
Don't forget to write in first person and in order of when the events happened. Try and use time connective words too like next, after that or finally.
Wednesday 20th January 2021
