This week we have been reading 'The Jolly Postman'. This book tells the story of a postman who delivers post to different fairy tale characters in story land. We drew maps to show the route taken by the Jolly Postman in the story and designed our own envelope and stamp to send to one of the characters. In literacy we created a postal address for a character in the story and wrote a postcard to the Giant.
Ideas for activities at home:
Encourage your child to learn their own address.
Write and send a letter or card, let your child do as much as possible.
Encourage your child to look at the post you send and receive during one week. Talk about where the letters came from and whether they are for business or pleasure.

We have also looked at the continent South America and made our own clay snakes (which still need to be painted!) and created nice colourful snakes to hang around the classroom!!
