Persuavsive letter writing by Yezda year 5

Dear Mr Pilkington,

I’m writing to inform you of the fantastic school travel opportunity available to your son Michael. Every year, year 5 pupils are given the opportunity to spend one week living and working on a fantastic farm in Gloucestershire. Some of the activities that Michael will be able to take part are weighing the pigs, finding fossils and making dens. Here are a few more things that your child will be doing; grooming horses, feeding the chickens, sheep horses, cows and pigs. Your child will also be making pizzas and salad. When your child goes to this farm trip they will learn about nature and country life!

I’m able to write a diary entry as a Victorian child at work by Sumaya year 5

Dear diary,

I am so happy I escaped from the workhouse and I found Rosie. One day the man with the square head sold me. I hope he does not take me to the workhouse again . I hope he takes me somewhere near my sister in the countryside. I might find my sister by running away to them and we might live in the same block. I miss the time I was selling fish with Rosie and Shremp. I can’t believe they haven’t taken Shremp but they took me. Maybe if they took Shremp to the workhouse with me and we could escape again, this time to the countryside. I really want to see Rosie again so we can sell fish and boot laces.

I’m sad about leaving my sister but now we have a good life. I don’t have to worry about them, I have to worry about myself, Shremp and Rosie. Rosie was my mum’s only friend, the only friend my mom ever had in her life. She didn’t have any more friends. The man that took me looked scary and freaky to me. I hope he lives in the countryside near my sister. I used to see my sister every day but now look at me. I have no sisters, just me alone with this man .


I am able to retell A Christmas Carol in my own words by Tiago year 5

Once there was an old man whose Scrooge. He was very selfish and only cared about money. He also had a clerk to work with it but the clerk barely had anything and didn’t get paid enough money so he was poor. One day Scrooge’s nephew came to visit. He shouted “Why hello uncle do you know that tomorrow is Christmas uncle?”

Scrooge muttered “Bah humbug”

“ Christmas a humbug uncle?” shouted Scrooge’s nephew. “I hate to see you this way come dine with us tomorrow?”

“No, Good afternoon” said Scrooge.

“Merry Christmas and Happy New Year”, then he left .

Two men then came to visit Scrooge. One of them said “Scrooge we need some of your money for the poor people in the workhouse because some people would rather die”.

Scrooge said “Well if they would rather die then they better do it soon so it would decrease the population. Good Afternoon.”

Then the two men said “Good Afternoon” . The reason Scrooge does not Christmas was because of Marley. He died on Christmas day seven years ago. That’s is why Scrooge hates Christmas. When it was the end of the day Scrooge walked home and so did the clerk. When Scrooge got home he sat down on his chair and heard a noise. It sounded like dragging heavy chains. Scrooge also heard bells ringing and footsteps . Scrooge had butterflies in his stomach. Suddenly a ghost appeared right in front of him, He was frightened so he asked the ghost who it was. The ghost said that he was Marley.
