 This week we are going to learn all about diary recounts. I've really enjoyed reading your diary entries in the past but now we know more sentence types, higher level conjunctions and punctuation, they should be absolutely fantastic!

 

Your task for today is to read the diary entry on the text from last week and answer the comprehension questions. 

 

Remember- If the questions requires you to explain, make a point, give evidence from the text and explain your point in detail!
