I hope you had a lovely Easter and didn’t eat too much chocolate! I have loved hearing what you’re all up to so please keep me updated through email or by commenting on the blog. This week I would like us to focus on writing. Here are 3 example activities you can do…
Activity 1: Can you practise your letters? Make sure you remember which way round you move and how they sit on the line - are they tall or do they go under the line? You can practise writing capital letters too! If you’re feeling really clever get your grown up to give you some words or sentences to write!
There’s lots of fun ways to practise handwriting. Here a few below:
- Use your finger / end of a pencil / stick to write in shaving cream, salt, soil or sand.
- Put paint in a plastic bag and write on the bag.
- Use water and a paintbrush to write letters outside (ground or wall)
- Make letters out of Lego bricks.
- Trace letters on someone’s back and they guess what it is (take turns).
- Write letters in lemon juice on paper with a cotton swab. Use an iron or hair dryer to make the letters magically appear.
- Make letters out of pipe cleaners.
- Write letters on the ground using chalk.
- Use toys or clothes to make letter shapes on the floor.

You could even create magic moving letters. See how here… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OM-LQQr-9Gc

Activity 2: Now it’s your turn to be the teacher! Can you use our Magic 5 checklist to fix my sentences? Oh dear, what have I forgotten? Can you make your own up and see if your Mum, Dad, brothers or sisters can fix the mistakes?
Activity 3: Create a diary of what you do each day. This could be a video, picture, written or typed diary. You could do it in a different way each time. Remember to say your sentence out loud lots so you don’t forget it. To help you can count the words on your fingers, record it or use Lego pieces to show each word. It would be nice to draw or add photos for each day if you can. Take a look at my examples to see what I’ve been up to.
Have fun. I look forward to seeing your great work!
