The Jolly Christmas Postman

As it is Christmas time, this experience is based around the story of The Jolly Christmas Postman. We will be learning about the fairytale story characters within the story and will write letters which will be placed inside the book. Then, for Christmas each child will be given a copy of the story with their own and their friends letters inside to read with friends and family at Christmas time. 

First, we learnt about the features of an informal letter, we used a spider map (one of our thinking tools) to do so:

We then put a letter back together and labelled the features:

Writing informal letters from a model text:


Our outcomes:

Elsie's wonderful letter to the Jolly Postman:

 Isabella's wonderful letter to Baby Bear:

 Alices's fantastic letter to Baby and Brother Bear:

We each took a copy of the story home with our letters inside:
