Weekly writing tasks

Welcome to the Weekly Writing page.

 

Every week, new writing tasks will be posted here by 9am each Monday.

 

There will be a prompt for the writing with some questions to talk about. Children of different ages will be able to talk about the questions together and share ideas.

 

There will be different tasks for each year/age group. All children should try to complete one written task per week but some children may like to complete more. Work can be handwritten on lined paper using a pencil or pen (this will be easiest for most children) or it could be typed. Each task can be broken down into smaller steps and does not have to be completed all in one go.

 

Completed written work should be e-mailed to the child’s class e-mail address by 3pm each Friday.

 

If you have any questions about the tasks set, please e-mail Learning@thepinesschool.org.uk

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind - Sports & Food (Monday 13th July)

 

This week we are learning about a variety of sports including sportsmen and women as well as having a bit of a focus on food.

 

Since this is the last week of writing tasks before the Summer holiday, I thought I would give you more of a choice of writing to complete. There are a set of choices for KS1 and a different set of choices for KS2. Remember to talk about the task before you start writing!

  

Writing Tasks

KS1 (Years 1 & 2)

Choose one of these writing options:

1. Your favourite food or meal

Write some sentences about your favourite food or meal. Describe what the food is like – what it looks like, tastes like and smells like. Try to use interesting words to describe it and to say why you like it. You could draw a picture as well if you want to!

 

2. How to make a food or drink

Write some instructions for making a food or drink e.g. a cheese and ham sandwich, a fruit smoothie or a homemade pizza! Make sure you list everything you will need and write the instructions in clear steps. You could draw the food or drink as well if you want to!

 

3. Sporting diary

Imagine you went to see your favourite football team play a match or you took part in a gymnastics competition or you met a famous sports person or you went to see an athletics competition. Write a diary of what happened on the day. Remember to include how you felt as well as what happened!

 

4. Sports story

Write a short story about a child who loves a particular sport. You can make it any kind of story you like. Maybe the child gets chosen for a team or gets to enter a competition. Maybe there is some sort of problem they have to overcome.

 

5. Research

Find out about either a food from another country or a sports man or woman and write some facts about them. Try to find out interesting information that you didn’t know before! You could include a picture as well.

 

KS2 (Years 3-6)

Choose one of these writing options:

1. Your favourite food or meal

Write a detailed description of your favourite food or meal. Describe what the food is like so that someone who has never tasted it could imagine what it is like. Think about what it looks like, how it smells and tastes and about the textures. Try to use interesting words to describe it and to say why you like it. You could use similes or metaphors too!

 

2. Restaurant advert

Create an advert for a restaurant – either a restaurant that already exists or you could make up one of your own. Think about the kind of food that is sold and what makes the restaurant such a good place to visit. Set out your advert clearly so it is bold and eye-catching. You could try to use persuasive language as well.

 

3. Sporting diary

Imagine you are a famous sportsman or sportswoman. Write a diary entry for a day where you do some training, play a match or enter a competition. Think about the details of the day, what you needed for the sporting activity and how you felt. Try to start your sentences in different ways.

 

4. Inspiring Sports Story

Write a short story about a child who has to overcome a challenge within sports. It could be struggling to join a team, letting team-mates down, having a disability, living somewhere there are not many sporting activities etc. Think about how the child could overcome the challenge so that it is inspiring in some way. Remember to include interesting vocabulary and different sentence starters.

 

5. Research

Find out about either the cuisine (typical foods) of another country or a famous sports man or woman and create a factfile about them. Try to find out interesting information that you didn’t know before! Think about how you can present the information: subheadings, bullet points, did you know boxes etc. Try to use some technical words too!

 

6. Persuasive letter

Write a persuasive letter to your parents persuading them to either let you choose all the food your family eats for a month or to let you join a new sporting club. You will need to think about how to organise your letter and how to make your points really clear. Try to use persuasive language and also think about starting your sentences in different ways.
