Writing task

Dear Maple Class,

We hope you are all well. Both your teachers are missing you all lots!

For your next writing task we would like you to write us a letter about what you have been up to at home. Are you enjoying doing the Joe Wicks PE everyday? What have you been playing in the garden? Have you read any good books? What are you looking forward to?

Try to remember to include:

  • Finger spaces between words
  • Capital letters to start a sentence
  • A full stop to show the end of a sentence
  • Use joining words such as and, but, so, etc.
  • Use descriptive language

You could also use this as a chance to remind yourself of our rainbow grammar to make sure your sentences make sense and are punctuated correctly.

  • Green - the subject of the sentence
    • I went on a bear hunt in the garden.
  • Orange - the predicate - what did the subject do?
    • I went on a bear hunt in the garden.
  • Red - the punctuation at the end, e.g. full stop, exclamation mark
    • I went on a bear hunt in the garden.

Please could you ask your grown ups to take a picture of your writing and send it to us? We will then be able to send you a letter back!

We hope you are all having a good time at home and that you enjoy the nice weather this weekend looks set to bring. 

We are both looking forward to hearing from you.

Mrs Morgan and Mrs Westie :)
