WRITING:  Write a letter to a family member or a friend. What are you going to tell the person you are writing to? What exciting things have you done that you would like to share? (Bike rides, walks, baking, sports, arts and crafts etc…) Will you ask them any questions? Maybe you would like to also draw them a picture.


Use this checklist to help you:

  • Write the date at the top of your letter
  • Who are you writing to? Dear…..
  • Capital letters and full stops
  • Neat, joined up handwriting
  • Paragraphs – start your letter with a short introduction…
  • Ending sentence – I hope to see you soon. Love from……
