Year One's visit to the Post Office
On Tuesday Year One walked to the Post Office to post letters to our parents. The children were very polite when buying their stamps using their manners and asking for their stamps in Welsh e.g. Ga i stamp. They even helped the post office lady with her reply in Welsh!
The post office assistant showed us her book of stamps, the different sized parcels which she weighed and we had a turn at weighing our letters. We then crossed the road and posted our letters in the post box for collection on Wednesday morning. On our way back to school we saw a postman delivering letters in the village.
The next day back in school we helped Mrs Wilson make a role play post office and we have been writing letters, wrapping parcels and taking it in turns to work in the post office or deliver the letters.
It has been a lovely first week in Year One with our birthday topic. We have designed birthday cards for our friends, made cakes in the dough, read and listened to birthday stories and found out when all of our birthdays are. In our choose time we have explored the new classroom areas such as dough, sand, water, construction, writers corner and the laptops. The children have also used new skills and equipment and have enjoyed making pictures with the Numicon number rods and using the Purple Mash computer programme. A highlight of the week was a visit to the ‘dough disco’ where we exercise our hands and brains before writing by using a pot of playdough, a video clip and some ‘finger gym’.
