Term break writing activities for middle high school students

Here are a few activities to help our Year 9s and 10s to keep up their English skills over the term break:

Read this article on ‘The unexpected power of random acts of kindness‘.

Annotating activities

  • Highlight and use the dictionary to learn any unfamiliar words 
  • Summarise the article in a flow chart 

Responding activities

  • Draw a comic strip of how this study was conducted 
  • Write a narrative describing a time when you received a small act of kindness. What was it? How did you feel? How did you respond? 
  • Write the conversation that might have happened between a person quoted in the article and the journalist of the article.
