The Jolly Postman
For the first half of our Spring Term our work focuses very much on the children's literacy development as through the story THE JOLLY POSTMAN we learn all about fairy tales.
We also learn all about letter writing and how to structure a letter as we write letters and postcards to the different characters in the story. The children especially enjoy posting their own letters at the post office!
Geography is also a major feature of this topic as we make maps for the Jolly Postman and explore different routes he might take.
The children also develop their ICT skills as they learn to use the digital camera and then edit their own photo to make themselves look like a character from the story.
We finish off this topic with a JOLLY POSTMAN DAY when all the children are invited to dress up as a character from the story for the day!
