I have created these packs for the children starting school in September to have over the summer.
Please see the cover image for the finished result.
The packs I made include:
A letter outlining what is in the pack (I stuck these on the front of the bags)
a Summer Challenge for the children to do over the summer (working on fine motor skills, fastening buttons, sharing stories etc)
a pack which has a poem about our school routine (you can adapt!), space for pictures of the school and staff
a small letter for the parents which can be included in a gift given to open on their child’s first day of school (my gift included a mini chocolate bar, tissues and tea bags and I wrote on the front 'dear parents of… please do not open until Tuesday 4th September)
a small letter to be included with a little pot of play dough (for children to work on their fine motor skills and pencil grip over the summer)
To go with these resources, I bought some paper bags, brown envelopes (for the parent gift), play dough pots, chocolate bars, tea bags and tissue packs. These can be sourced pretty cheap on amazon.
The TES preview shows my work in a different font - it is actually saved in comic sans. I use pre cursive font in my class, but I know that not everyone does! :-)
