Problem - The class are seeing whether a 2 litre bottle of pop or a 300ml can of pop have the most liquid.

English - Writing Postcards using time connectives

As you practiced using time connectives yesterday in instructions, today you are going to use them in a diary.

I would like you to write a postcard to Katie Morag telling her everything you have been up to today or this week.

Think about using:

  • Time connectives
  • Capital letters and full stops.
  • You could use different types of sentences in your postcards e.g. statements, questions, exclamations.

Here is an example to help you:

To Katie

The weather here is beautiful and sunny. What is the weather like in Struay?

What a busy day I’ve had! I have been so busy completing all my work whilst school has been closed due to the coronavirus. First I got up and had my tasty, crunchy cornflakes and then I got dressed into my clean, soft clothes. Next I completed the Joe Wick’s Workout. How exhausting! Have you been doing the Joe Wicks workout? After that I did my Maths and English jobs for the day. In the Afternoon I completed my spellings, reading and topic work. What have you been up to?

See you soon

Time connectives are words or phrases which are used to tell a reader WHEN something is happening.

Time connectives can be used when writing diaries and instructions. Here is an example how to use time connectives:

This morning, I ate fried bananas for breakfast, then I had some blueberry pancakes. While taking the bus to school, I read my comic. Finally, we reached the school gates.

Can you use time connectives to write instructions of how to brush your teeth?
