Leo's Diary

6S have been working extremely hard this week on drafting and editing their diary entries based on our trip to the Holocaust Centre.

Look at the fantastic presentation!

Diary Writing

Today in 6ps we have been thinking about the features of diaries. These include:

-rhetorical questions

-thoughts, opinions and feelings

- written in the past tense

- written in chronological order

- chatty and informal style

- use of paragraphs to support organisation

- written in the 1st person

- use of repetition and exaggeration

There have been some excellent examples of diary writing today. We were imagining that we were Michael from the story Kensuke's Kingdom and that he had written a set of diary entries detailing his adventures within the story.

Here are some pictures of some excellent examples!
