This half term we have been reading a book called the Jolly Postman.. The children have learnt all about writing letters and we thought it was a good idea to write letters to our families to let them know how we have been getting on in Year One. The children made plans or their letters and wrote draft letters from these plans. We edited them to make them better and then wrote up a final draft. Our favourite part of the process was licking the envelope!
As a class we all walked down to the post box, carrying our letters. We were all very excited and enjoyed walking with our friends. We then posted the letters to our families. When the children came back to school, they were all excited to tell me about receiving their letters through the post and I sure they were just as excited at home!
