LO. To be able to write a diary entry

Good morning children,

Today, you will be using all the features of diary entry writing to write a diary entry about a day in the life of a Roman soldier. Remember, you are imagining you are the Roman soldier so don’t forget to write in first person!


Make sure your research is completed before you start this lesson so that you can write a good full recount of your day. An example diary entry has been given to you, so that you understand the layout and the style of writing.  


Remember it has to use the following:

  • Chronological order
  • First person (Example: First thing in the morning, I rolled out of bed and put on my leather slippers.)
  • Past tense
  • You must also use all of the other features on the checklist, including your feelings and emotions throughout the day.


Happy writing soldier!
