My Amazing Diary 2021

5-7 Years

Get writing today with My Amazing Diary...

Keeping a diary is a fantastic way to get younger pupils into a regular writing habit, which helps them become fluent and confident writers.

My Amazing Diary offers your pupils the opportunity to kick-start a diary writing habit! You could ask your pupils to keep a diary for the rest of this term, writing a recount of this experience at the end of term to enter. Alternatively, they could try their hand at writing about a day in the life of someone else, or even writing about an imaginary event.

From recounts to creative writing to an extended writing project, My Amazing Diary is here to help your pupils enjoy writing regardless of their ability. Let's get writing today!
