Write about your Christmas holiday experiences (a recount). Try to write at least 3 sentences about what you did.
Make sure each one has a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop at the end.
Sound out any unfamiliar words using your phonics - say each word and write down the sounds you can hear e.g. c-r-i-s-t-m-u-s Cristmus. If your child has tried a word, using their sounds, then it is fine to leave an inaccurate spelling.
Extension: Try to use connectives in your sentences (and, so, because, but). For example: I had lots of yummy turkey but I ate it all up.
