KS2 letter to father christmas

Handwriting practice: Letter to Father Christmas

Use your KS2 child's Christmas letter to Father Christmas as a fun opportunity to practise handwriting. The layout has been done for them, now all they need to do is write their Christmas list, name and address and pop it in the post (find Santa's address on the Royal Mail website!). This is a great activity to help children consider how to form letters correctly and there's plenty of space to include wished-for items. Writing this letter will also help them understand that letters have a purpose and a particular audience.
