Write a list of the presents you received from Father Christmas or a list of your favourite toys.

Choose your favourite gift or toy and write about it. Imagine if I was blindfolded. Give me clues so I could choose from your list which item you are writing about.


  •  What it looks like.
  •  How it feel.
  • How does it move.
  • Where did you get it from?
  • What do you do with it?
  • Think about the sentence you are going to write and talk it out loud.
  • Use capital letters for the beginning of a sentence.
  • Use capital letters for names.
  • Use your Fred fingers to sound out words.
  • Use finger spaces.
  • Look back to make sure your sentence makes sense.
  • Read your story out loud and correct any mistakes.

This term we are focusing on our handwriting. We are focusing on how we form each letter correctly to enable us to begin to join letters.

The general rule is that most of the letters begin at the top and once we put the pencil to paper we don't take it off until we finish the letter. There are exceptions to the rule such as k and d, but if you say the rhyme for the letter you will remember.

Please complete 1 letter each day in your book. Take your time and ensure they are all the same size.

This term we will be looking at different materials. We will be asking questions relating to what specific items are made from and why. What materials are our toys made from and comparing them with toys from the past and which materials they were made from.
