Writing Challenge – week beginning 18.05.20

Can you write your name? CLICK HERE for letter formation guidance with the rhymes we use

Many of you can write your own name, but it’s been a few weeks since you needed to do so!

Practise writing your name – you can ask an adult to write it for you to copy, but keep practising until you can do it all by yourself!

   

How many letters are in your name? Make sure you count them all to check you haven’t missed any!

Once you know how to write your name, challenge yourself further:

Are the letters all the right way around? have you formed them correctly?

How many times can you write your name in 1 minute?

Can you write your name in rainbow colours?

Can you make a name plaque for your door?

Ask an adult to write your name lots of times of papers and hide them around the house – how many can you find? Can you read your own name?

Writing Challenge! Week beginning 11.05.20

Packing a Bag!

Can you draw and label things that you would pack to go somewhere. 

You could choose the beach, the shops, someones house, camping, a baby changing bag, or something else. You need to think about what food you would take or what toys you might pack.

Can you draw a picture with more than one of these in and write a sentence?

We had a go, but we think you can write a much more interesting sentence!

I will pack a bucket.
