Literacy Activities

Fun Christmas Activities revising concepts previously taught.
Circle-time using Santa’s hat. 

Fixing sentences to include a capital letter at the beginning, leaving finger spaces and putting a full stop at the end.

The children are encouraged to remember when writing to place the letters correctly on the line.  If it is a long letter like p or g it goes below the line, small letters like a and i sit on the line and tall letters like d and h go upwards to nearly reach the line above.

Please keep reminding your child at home this concept and emphasis correct letter formation.

We made a witches hat, using an ice cream cone, a biscuit, melted chocolate and sprinkles.
