Week beginning 23/01/17
This week we set up our role play area as a post office. We had a great time writing letters, addressing envelopes, buying and sticking on stamps, and delivering parcels! We decided to post a real letter to ourselves - we drew a postcard to ourselves, and addressed it to our home address. Next week we shall visit the nearest post box to send it and then wait and see when it arrives home!
We used the opportunity of sending parcels in role play to explore weight and the concept of heavy and light and 'balancing'.
We were very lucky to have a visit from Mr. Darren Cookson, one of our school Governors, who is also an anaesthetic nurse. He talked to us about his work and how he helps people. He came dressed in his uniform and let us try out some of his equipment such as his stethoscope!
