Writing Ideas:

  • Write a diary entry like Samuel Pepys.
  • Write a newspaper report about ‘The Great Fire of London’
  • Write a postcard to your teacher.
  • Write a story involving different members of your family. What might happen? Do they have to travel somewhere unusual? Do they have to defeat a monster?
  • Write a set of family rules. Could they begin with ‘We always…’ rather than ‘We do not…’
  • Write a rap/song/poem about something you are passionate about.


When you are writing, you could plan your idea, draft it, edit and then publish it in your very best presentation. Remember to think about your punctuation and make sure your sentences make sense.



  • You could practise your handwriting by copying out your favourite bits from a book or even your funniest joke.
  • Try writing your letters using different types of writing resources; e.g. pens, felt tips, pencils, glittery gel pens or in sand.
