This week Little Mister has continued on his quest to get better at his writing with his letter to Father Christmas. And as such his spellings are now coming along nicely, thanks for asking! It’s amazing in just a few weeks how he’s remembering to spell words correctly more often rather than phonetically. Don’t get Read More
