Just in time for the Christmas Post
Over the past several weeks, Year One have been busy developing a scale model of a post box. Measuring a nearby full-sized version first, the children have steadily constructed an impressive replica bit by bit with a great deal of care.
The project was cross-curricular in nature, linking with the study of ‘The journey of a letter’ in Geography lessons.
Much was learned about Royal Mail and the features of a traditional post box. An important learning experience was communicated as the children saw their work evolve over a number of weeks. Patient yet understandably eager to see the final outcome, each child successfully negotiated the various stages to see their efforts result in a model of a very high standard.
With a final lick of paint, the post box was finished just in time to receive the (albeit miniature) Christmas post and a sprinkling of snow!
