Today I would like you to write a diary entry about the first day of lockdown. Include emotive and informal language features. Think back to the first week of lockdown. How did you feel? What things did you do? How did your routine change? Read the example below to help you. Include lots of descriptive language to create an image in the mind of the reader.


Dear diary,

I woke up this morning and stretched my arms out wide. Yawning loudly, I turned over to look at the clock. I couldn’t believe it! It was 9 o’clock in the morning and I was still in bed.

Today is Monday and normally I would be sat in assembly time at school listening to Mrs Lindsay. But not today! Sadly, my school has been forced to close because of the horrible nasty virus that is going around the world. The funny looking man, who has wild, yellow hair, on TV told everyone that the schools needed to shut. I am not sure how that is going to work and I am sad that I will not see my friends and my teacher every day. Never mind! If this is what we have to do in order to keep everyone safe then I will do it!

After I eat my breakfast, I am going to play on my Playstation for an hour. It is my favourite thing to do because I love playing all of my exciting games.    


Deeper learning challenge: Write a list of all the emotive language that you used. Edit your work by adding more emotive language.
