Capital Letters for Dates 2 Lesson

This Capital Letters for Dates 2 lesson covers the prior learning of using capital letters when writing the days of the week, before moving onto the main skill of using capital letters when writing the date.

The lesson starts with a prior learning activity to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning with engaging reasoning and application tasks.
