Diary entry day 1. 


Today we want you to write a diary entry pretending you are Robert Falcon Scott about leave Cardiff for the South Pole.


Things to think about for when writing your diary: 

  • Start with Dear Diary. e.g. Dear Diary, Today I set off for the South Pole on the magnificent ship 'The Terra Nova' 
  • Write in 1st person. 
  • Describe you're feeling .e.g. nervous? Excited? Manic? 
  • What's the ship like? Describe the ship. Talk about 5 senses. 
  • What are the crew like? 
  • What is the weather like in Cardiff? What have you packed? 


Draw a picture of your ship in detail using the shading techniques we learnt last week at the end of your work.
