Year 6 Diary entry on the Easter story

Year 6 Diary entry on the Easter story

A series of lessons on writing diary entries based on the Easter Story. There are three notebooks with three separate activities for writing a diary entry from the perspective of one of Jesus’ disciples during Easter week. I used this as a week’s worth of English lessons with my Year 6 class, starting with a diary entry on Palm Sunday. This was followed by a diary entry on the Last Supper and finally a diary entry on Jesus’ crucifixion. In the three notebooks there are spoof diary entries with deliberate mistakes which the children can then correct (correct answers are on the next page of the notebook). In addition, there are word banks for the children to use and good examples of what they could write on each notebook.
