It is that time of year again folks. The reindeer are getting ready for their annual voyage around the world and a certain Christmas personage is packing his final presents. Our homework this week is to craft a special letter to Father Christmas. As long as you return your letters to school by next Thursday, we will send them on your behalf to the North Pole.

You letter should include:

  • Compliments and kind words about Father Christmas.

  • Some reasons why you have been good this year (give examples).

  • Some of your hopes and wishes for Christmas and the new year.

The letter will have the school address at the top so that Father Christmas can write back to you at school.

Write a short diary entry


This week in literacy we have been thinking about how to write a diary. We have looked at writing a diary from the perspective of a character in a film.

Have a go at writing a diary entry for your weekend. It can be about this weekend or it can be a made up or past event. Try to make sure the diary entry contains:

  • A date as a title

  • Is written in first person (I , my etc.)

  • Past tense

  • In chronological order (Time order)

  • Contains time connectives (e.g. then, next, afterwards)

  • Feelings and emotions.




Extension :    Edit your work. Add two adverbs. Re-write one sentence changing its order. E.g. I walked downstairs calmly only to find my sister had eaten all the cornflakes. -> Calmly, I walked downstairs only to find my sister had eaten all the cornflakes.
