Imagine a Day
Start the session by thinking about the following questions
What do you like about your days?
What do you think makes a good day?
You can discuss your ideas with someone at home or make some notes of your ideas in your Home Learning Journal if you like - remember notes do not need to be written in full sentences.
Next close your eyes and imagine what you would do on a perfect day - try to picture where you would be, what you would be doing, what the weather would be like, who you would be with. When you open your eyes draw a picture of your perfect day including as much detail as possible.
To finish imagine what you would write in your diary after your perfect day - use your Home Learning Journal to write your diary entry describing your perfect day.
