Creative Writing Competition

5-7 Years

My Amazing Diary Graphic

Inspire little learners with writing a diary entry based on a real or imaginary event!

Get writing today with My Amazing Diary...

Who or what will inspire your pupils' diary entry? They could write a recount about a lockdown experience or a day in the life of their favourite person, or they could write about an imaginary event like a trip to the moon or their best day ever!

It’s easy to link in with your current topic or creative writing project, and the resources can be adapted to suit your pupils' needs.

We've also launched the new, free teacher accounts, you can sign in or create yours at and then access the Online Writing Portal where pupils can type their poems directly into during a lesson (or home learning!).
