    Remember the features of a letter that you will need to include; ‘dear’ and ‘from’, and writing using the personal pronoun ‘I’.

  3. Maths
    Open your own shop! This can be for fruit, biscuits, toys, time for a play in the garden … anything!
    Decide with an adult what your shop is called and what is going to be for sale in your shop.
    Give each item a price – these prices can be changed later on if you fancy a bit of a challenge!
    Take turns being the shopkeeper and the customer!
    How did you make the total amount? Did you use just 1 coin? How many coins did you have to use?
    Record your findings.
