This week there is another talk for writing unit to try, specially designed for year 1 children like you. This one is all about a naughty Pixie. There are lots of jobs so don’t try and do them all in one day. Below is what I suggest you do each day if you can. Like last time, don’t worry if you can’t finish every task, just do your best.
