Today we are planning a diary entry.
Share the Diary PPT/ presentation to talk about some of the features of a diary.
Watch ‘Tigress’. While you are watching, pick out the key events that happen in the book (collect in your book or on paper) finding a den, sleeping and feeding the cubs, moving den, cubs fighting, feeding by killing prey and leaving the cubs alone.
Explain we are going to plan a diary entry to write independently tomorrow. What is a diary? Why do we keep a diary?
We are pretending to be mummy tiger and writing her diary.
Children use planning template to make notes for each day of the week. The notes will be in chronological order as you write them in the order they happened.
Collect interesting words in addition to what the tiger did each day, and how tigress might be feeling.
