For this week's Literacy, we are writing a diary entry as a Victorian child working in a workhouse.
You should be thinking about writing in first person while using your five senses to describe key details and feelings.
The features of a diary entry can be found below on a document along with the modelled example and a powerpoint summarising the Victorian workhouses.
A rough guide for the week could be:
Read the modelled example and highlight key information and vocabulary.
Look up any words you do not know or understand with a dictionary (online or paper-based)
Create storyboard (break up modelled example into its paragraph and draw a basic picture highlighting key facts within that paragraph, adding key vocab and punctuation from that paragraph).
Break up each paragraph into bullet pointed notes so that you have a deeper understanding of the information you want to include.
Use various resources to build on this vocabulary - can you find any suitable synonyms for words the modelled example has used?
Wednesday and Thursday
Start writing your own version using your storyboard and plan - try not to look at the modelled example.
Carefully read over and edit what you have written so far, up-levelling and improving in a different colour if possible.
Finish writing your diary entry.
