English Challenges
 
*** Mrs Choi's Writing Challenge***
 
Whilst in lockdown, I wonder if you can earn yourself a Blue Blue Peter Badge! The Blue Peter Badges have been awarded to children since 1963 and to win one of them you need to send a creative contribution to the Blue Peter show. This could be a letter, a song, a story, a diary entry or even some artwork!
 
Remember before you try this you need to ask your parent's permission! 
 
If you sound interested and want to find out more then follow the link and read the information below.
 
Other Challenges:
If you find that you have completed your writing and want to continue impressing your teacher, why not try some of the activities below. Remember to send them in to your class email!
 
- Listen to the story 'Beezer' and write a book review about it. Make sure you include information about the following: the characters, genre, plot, setting description and your opinion of the text. Try and use evidence to justify your thoughts. 
 
- Watch the video below 'Write a Murder Mystery with Robin Stevens' and create your own murder mystery. Think about what literary devices you might want to use to impact the reader and build character. 
 
- Watch the short video clip below ''Newspaper report about missing professor'. Use this to inspire you to write a newspaper article about the disappearance of the missing professor.
