What would you like to know more about, about this book? Write five of your own questions.

WRITING

At the moment in writing we will be focussing on writing letters. Today we will be planning our letters. Think about these questions and write down your answers:

Who are you writing your letter to?

What are you going to tell them?

Why are you writing your letter?

Which sentence starters will you use?

Which joining words would you like to use?

If you would like, you could write your letter for us at school! We would love to hear about everything you have been doing.

MATHEMATICS 

In mathematics today, we would like you to play the games below to practise recognising and making symmetrical patterns and pictures. To be symmetrical the picture or pattern needs to be the same on both sides of the line. The activities below are at three levels, pick the level that you think is best for you.
