Today, we are going to be completing an excellent piece of writing in the form of a diary entry.  You need to find in your pack the sheet called The Tin Forest – Diary Entry (note that it is double-sided!).


Then, take a look at this video to get you started:

Here is the picture again of the incredible tin forest that the old man created from all the rubbish that had been dumped around his home:



In your diary entry, I want you to focus on feelings and the contrast between how the old man felt when the real bird visited the forest and then how he must have felt when it went away again.


Here is some more help with juicy language and a reminder list (click on the pictures to see a bigger version)

Let’s finish the week of home learning with a great piece of writing – I know you can do it.  I even left some space on your sheet for some beautiful illustrations!  Have fun!

Make sure you spend time every day on myON reading books and taking quizzes for your AR target this term.
