News book

Image result for writing book clipart

Reception Ash-Your child has brought home a ‘News Book’. Please spend 10-15 minutes helping them to fill in a page or two with some exciting ‘news’ from over the Easter holiday. We are encouraging the children to write simple sentences and they will then be able to share their news with the class on their return to school. We will be sending this book home at the weekends to continue to develop the children’s writing skills.

Reception Alder-Your News book will be coming home first week back after the holidays, could you draw a picture and write a sentence to take into school to share with the class?

Encourage your child to write some simple sentences such as; I got lots of eggs or I went to the park. We are working hard to remember to use capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and to know where our writing should sit.


Thank you for your continued support.
