Letter to Santa
Ask your child to write a letter to Santa trying to apply the different features of letters that they have learnt about in school. They could include what they are wishing for, ways that they have been good this year, questions for Santa and hopes and wishes for next year.
Ask your child to have a go at making a Christmas card of their choice. See the pictures provided for inspiration. We would love to see photos of their finished creations.
