Letter writing can be fun, help children learn to compose written text, and provide handwriting practice — and letters are valuable keepsakes. Encouraging children to write letters from an early age will improve their communication, social and handwriting skills, and teach them what they need to know about writing and structuring letters. PLUS.. ITS A WHOLE LOT OF FUN!
The sheer fun of sending and receiving letters appeals to every child. There is something special about putting letters into the post box and then having letters delivered by the postman… the brightly coloured stamps, seeing your name on the envelope and knowing that inside is a long awaited letter from a friend or member of the family. It shows someone cares and has taken the time to sit down and think about you.
Handwritten letters have a charm of their own. You can take time to think about what you want to say. You can keep letters to read again and again. You can admire the handwriting; share dreams and thoughts.

- Letters of congratulation
- Exchanging news
- Writing to friends/fairies
- Letters saying sorry for doing something wrong
- Asking for information
- Letters to Santa Claus & Easter Bunny
