Morning everyone!


I hope you enjoyed the start to our new class book yesterday!


Today, we are going to have a writing focus to our English work. Your first task is to re-read pages 7, 8 and 9 - the first two blogs by Alice. As you are reading, have a look at the features of the text.

What makes it a blog?

How is it written?

What type of vocabulary does the author use to make it sound like Alice is writing it? What writing 'devices' does the author use? - think about the work you did with Miss Green before Christmas.


Next, have a look at the BBC Bitesize link below.

What is a blog?

What does blog mean?

How are most conventional blogs different from Alice's blog?


Your task   

  • Using the blog I have created on Purple Mash, write a blog post.
  • Log in details can be found on the home learning page
  • The blog is called 'Sea Bean'
  • I would like you to write your blog as you, from first person
  • You are going to write as if you are stranded in the village you live in during lockdown, which is convenient, because you are!
  • You can include pictures 
  • Think about the features used in Alice's blog post, and the ones you have seen on the Bitesize example
  • If you want to draft it on paper, edit it, then publish it online, that is fine
  • If you don't get this finished today, you can work on it over the weekend, and publish it on Monday.
  • It only needs to be 2 or 3 paragraphs long, not your detailed life story!
  • As always, punctuation, spelling, vocabulary choices, and sentence structure are all important!


Good luck! I look forward to reading these!
