Writing:

  • Write a list of all the things you really enjoy doing at home. Remember to sound out your own words when writing. You could also draw a picture of some of these things too. I look forward to hearing about all the things you really enjoy doing at home.
  • Maybe you could also write a list of all the things you are missing about being at school. Can you draw a picture of some of your friends and write their names? Remember to use a capital letter at the start of each name.
  • Please ask an adult to email me pictures of your work. I look forward to hearing about your favourite things at home and the things that you are missing about school. The thing I am missing most about school is seeing all of you. 
  • Keep working on your daily entry in your diary. Remember we are trying to write our sentences independently. Say the sentence first, ahead of writing it. Hold the sentence in your head whilst writing. Then read your writing to an adult, to check that it all makes sense.
