Postcard Creations - Year 1S

Throughout Term 1, 1S has been sending and receiving messages from their Year 6 buddies in Singapore.

The students have learned a lot about their pen pals' families, hobbies, likes and dislikes - as well as Singapore itself. The children have come to understand that although we may live oceans apart, there are many similarities, too. The students have been studying letter writing and have been eagerly creating postcards to send to their new friends.

The children studied the significance of the images on postcards before they selected the pictures that would represent themselves on their home-made postcard. Using different picture storybooks, the students identified the different parts of a letter. Letters were then carefully written.

The children happily licked each stamp and carefully placed them on their postcard. Then on Friday morning, we eagerly marched to the Post Office to send the cards off to Singapore!
