This afternoon we are going to write some secret messages!
I would like you to write a secret message to somebody in your house and ask them to write one for you, too!
To do this you will need a white wax crayon or a wax candle and some paint or felt tip pens.
Use the crayon or candle to write your secret message on a piece of paper- nobody will be able to see this!
Swap your secret message over with your grown up's secret message. To reveal the secret message, paint over them using a paint wash (paint mixed with water) or felt time pans.
I would also like you to practise some of the different marks on the mark making cards attached below. Which ones can you do?
Grown ups- your child's secret messages do not need to be read-able yet- this activity is simply to encourage writing skills and spark an interest in writing.
However, do ensure that you ask your child what their message says.
I will leave you now with another one of my favourite stories to end our day.
I hope you had a lovely day. Don't forget to share your super learning with me today so that I can give lots of green dojos.
Have a lovely afternoon and I will see you online tomorrow!
