Today you will be writing a diary entry.
Watch this video. It tells the story of The Enormous Pumpkin.

Think carefully about the farmer's actions and feelings.
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
Task : Imagine you are the farmer planting the seeds and write her diary entry for the day.
To help you there is an example of a diary entry attached below which might give you some inspiration for your own writing.There is also a planning sheet and template to use if you wish. You can write your diary entry straight into your book too.
