Over the past 2 weeks in English, year 2 have been learning about letter writing. The finale of this topic was to write a letter to Father Christmas explaining what gifts we would really like.
Running parallel to these lessons, Year 4 were writing letters of their own. When year 2 finished their letters we secretly lent them to year 4, who read our letters and carefully planned a letter in response. The children who have siblings in year 2 were lucky enough to write their sibling’s response, making this task really personal.
These letters were then sealed by Santa’s elves and the scene was set. The year 2 children really have received a personalised letter based on the letter that they originally wrote. Thank you Year 4.
