Class 1 learn about the Post Office

We read the Jolly Postman and investigated the mail he was delivering. We painted pictures of the characters from the story and also of the characters we would write to. The children then wrote letters to a character of their choice. We went on to write letters to our friends. We learnt how to write our addresses on the front of the envelope. We learnt about the journey of a letter, then we went on a trip to the post office and bought a stamp. The children were very excited to receive their letters throught the post. We used goole images to investigate stamps then designed some of our own. Some children even made their designs relevant to the place they were writing their letters to. For example Summer was writing to Tinkerbell and so drew Fairyland on her stamp.
