Day 1 (Do not complete if your child is in school Monday/Tuesday or Thursday/Friday)

 

English – Invitation Writing

 

This week we are going to write an invitation to someone, inviting them to a picnic. (This could be someone in your house or even your favourite toy or teddy). To start with, are going to look at different invitations to give us some ideas about what to include in our own!

We will need to compare them. To do this, you could write the features you spot and see which ones appear the most.

 

Here are some features:

Features on invitations:

  • Who the invite is from
  • Who the invite is going to
  • Date
  • Time
  • Place
  • RSVP
  • Reason
  • Picture
  • Contact information

 

Have a look at some invitations that you may have around the house or have a look on google images. (Please ask your adult to find you these images. Do not use the internet on your own).

Do they all have the same features? Why do some have these parts and others don’t? Do we really need them or do they just look nice? i.e. are they providing extra information about the party.

Day 2 (Do not complete if your child is in school Monday/Tuesday or Thursday/Friday)

Today we are going to write our invitations! Our invitation is to someone in your house or even your favourite toy or teddy. You will be inviting them to a picnic in the park/garden.

 

Recap the features we saw yesterday on the invitations.

Discuss what that might look like when you include it in your own invitation. Remember this information is important so that the recipient has all the information they need.

 

Here are some features to include.

Features on invitations:

Look at the power points in English resources:

Choose one type of bear to research and find out more about it.

 

Where does it live?

What does it eat?

How does it move?

How does it look after its young?

What are the dangers that it faces?

Paddington Bear wore a luggage label saying ‘Please look after this bear’.
