Writing: Extended Write - 'My Lockdown Life'
Over the week, I would like to work on a piece of writing that is a first person description of being in Lockdown at the age of 10/11. It needs to be emotive and descriptive. Don't forget to use expanded noun phrases, conjunctions, a range of sentence starters (including adverbial phrases) and a range of punctuation. I would love these to be emailed to myself or put on dojo as I know you will do some amazing writing and I would love to read it.
An example is:
Sitting here staring out of the window, a tear rolls down my face as I gaze into the distance - looking, hoping to see someone, but nothing, a sight of emptiness! This is the fourth week now that I have sat and wondered......wondered what my friends, my family, my peers are doing. My day is filled with sadness at the moment, sadness of what is happening to the world and what this is doing to me. Bursts of happiness, take strides in my day when I get to talk to my grandma and facetime my mum. These are the moments that I am living for each day, having conversations with people, smiling down the phone at my family and constantly reminding ourselves that this will all be over soon. Hourly, I hear the clock chime, reminding me of the slow time is passing. Every day, in delight, I step out into the fresh air, a relief from being 'trapped' inside the same four walls. Wind brushes across my pale cheeks, birds happily tweet above me and the scent of blossoming flowers all remind me of the outside world and give me a rush of happiness. Playing football on the grass, having a delicious picnic or going on a nature walk gives me the sense of freedom. I love this time. I have begun to treasure things in life - things I may not have treasured before; the use of technology to keep me communicated with family and friends, 'family time' playing games and learning to cook and most important, it's made me realise how important people are to me.
This is just a start. Tell me what you do each day and how it feels. Explain what you are looking forward too when we come out of Lockdown.
Who were the Egyptians?
Our next topic is The Egyptians!
What I would like you to do is on a piece of A4 paper create a title page for a topic book on The Egyptians that we will be adding pages to each week. This can be on the computer or by hand. You need: A title, a picture/some pictures and your name - in hieroglyphics.
On purple mash, I have set you a 'to do' task. If you log on, this should be in your task section. If it is not, you need to click on the computing box and then on the River Rapids game. This is an activity where you need to be using coding and directions to direct the boat to the tomb. Enjoy!
