Week 5

Writing about your emotions

This week, I would like to know more about your experience of lock-down experiences. This can be through a short story based on what you have done - it has to be non fiction - real life, it can be through a poem, a recount or even a letter. 

Use the skills that you have learnt over the term in writing to choose your favourite style of writing and use the lock down as your experience.

 

Step 1

Create a vocabulary bank that includes ambitious vocabulary to explain your emotions, experiences, thoughts and hopes. Think about using a thesaurus to expand your vocabulary further.

 

Step 2

Plan your writing - what is the purpose and who is your audience? Remember to make sure that you are thinking in chronological order eg:

I am writing a poem that explains my emotions and actions during lock down. My audience is not focused to one group but should be read by all who are interested.

Verse 1 = start of the virus

scared, terrified, worried. confused

stay at home

unknown

everything closing

 

Verse 2:

At home, working, worried, teaching my children, hoping for updates

Prime minister ill, now very concerned for everyone in my family who I cannot see

 

Verse 3:

Bored, lonely, sleepy, unmotivated, lazy

house clean, shopping ordered, work being done - no one to talk to and not allowed out

 

Verse 4:

Released from captivity, out in the open, exercise, excitement, joy

riding my horse wind in hair no one there

 

Verse 5:

Lock down is ending - confused, what happens next?

 

Step 3:

Draft your writing - remember to ensure that your sentences are well punctuated and make sense

 

Step 4:

Edit and present your work neatly. Send it to a KS2 teacher via email
