Good morning. It is Friday and the sun is shining!
Please find below the home learning for today.
If you'd like to start the day with a fun movement song, join in with the video below.
Literacy- Zoom at 9:30
Today in literacy, we will be writing letters to the Queen. The Queen enjoys receiving letters from members of the public. She has a big team of people who help her to read all her letters. Sometimes, if you are lucky, you might get a reply from the Queen.
In our letters, we will be including the following:
- A sentence to say who we are and what school we are from
- My name is ..................and I go to St. Peter's School in Shoreham.
- A sentence explaining that we have been learning about the monarchy
- In school, we have been learning about Kings and Queens.
- A sentence about what we enjoyed about our learning (optional)
- I really enjoyed learning about the different Kings and Queens in history.
- A question we have for the Queen
- What do you like to do in your spare time?
Traditionally, there is a specific way to start and end a letter to the Queen. We will follow these rules when writing our letters. The rules are:
Start your letter with Madam and end with, I have the honour to be, Madam, Your Majesty's humble and obedient servant.
Here is an example of my letter.
Below you will find some templates to write your letter on. There are some different borders to choose from and also a sheet with some sentence starters. Please choose the template you require and print it off. If you are unable to print, you can write your letter on any paper you have at home. We look forward to reading your letters, as I'm sure the Queen will too!
****Please bring your letter into school next week. We will send the letters together in a pack to the Queen.****
Please ask a grown-up to test you on your spellings. Good Luck! Let us know how you got on!
