Worship

In the Sunday Gospel, we hear how Jesus changed Simon’s name to Peter, which means “rock”. Names are very important – we all have one and God knows all of us by our name. Let’s think a bit more about names today.

In English this week, we will be looking at diary entries.

Click on the link and watch the story of ‘The Enormous Pumpkin’

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6yxt39

Pay close attention to the farmer’s actions and feelings. You can write a short diary entry imagining that you are her.

 

Here’s a checklist of the key features to use when you write a diary entry.

  • Start with ‘Dear Diary’.

  • Describe the places where the events happened.

  • Write in the past tense.

  • Use pronouns like I, my and me to show that the events happened to you.

  • Talk about how you were feeling or what you were thinking when each event happened.
