Has your child been looking out for letters that spell ‘happy’ or ‘healthy’?

Monday 12 August 2019

St James’ CE Primary is a happy and healthy place to believe and achieve – and we want your child to celebrate this by creating the words ‘happy’ (for children up to Year 2) or ‘healthy’ (for children in Year 3 to Year 6) from letters that your child spots in the environment.

Here’s an example of a letter ‘h’ which we’ve found on the internet – somewhere in their surroundings, can your child find the five letters that spell ‘happy’ or the seven letters that spell ‘healthy’?

We found the example above on the internet, but it would be even better if your child were to take pics from real life – perhaps they could find all the images on one day out, or perhaps they set themselves a target of finding one letter every week of the holidays. Your child could spot ‘letters’ near their home or on holiday. They could make the letter shapes from their own body, stretched into different positions, or they could even ask different family members to create the shapes!

There will be four prizes of £15 book tokens – one for the best ‘happy’ word and one for the best ‘healthy’ word.

Please paste the words into a Word document – one side of A4 – and email to school (stjamesoffice@spherefederation.org) by Friday 06 September 2019.

Good luck!
