Ideas for writing – these can be written in your free writing book

No more than three big writing activities a week.  It is a good idea to plan the activity before writing (just like the children do in class and for The Big Write). 

Write a letter to your teacher, your best friend or a family member

Write instructions for a game you might play – it could be a game you make up yourselves

Write a recipe of something delicious you might make

Write instructions for an Easter craft item

Write a poem about spring or Easter – use some poetic features (acrostic, rhyme, rhythm, alliteration, repetition).  Your poem could be a riddle.

Rewrite a story you have read

Make up a story of your own.  Think about where it will be set and who the characters will be.

Write a non-fiction report about a topic that interests you…sport, the weather, water, oceans, planets, animals (to name a few).

And finally…read, read and read some more!!
