The Jolly Christmas Postman

Friday 15 December 2023


This week we enjoyed the story, The Jolly Christmas Postman.

The children loved seeing the different letters, gifts and cards inside each envelope.

Inspired by the book, we wrote our own postcards with special messages. We learned about the journey of a letter from the post box to our front door and can’t wait for our own letters to be delivered!



We have looked at 2D and 3D shapes. We made shapes with lolly sticks, found shapes in our classroom, and discussed their properties.

In provision, we used shapes to create pictures. The children were able to talk about the different shapes they had used.



Feeling the Christmas spirit, we listen to Michael Bublé – White Christmas.

We moved in time to the music, listened carefully to the lyrics, and the different sounds and instruments.
