This fortnight, we have been learning about 'An Post'. We talked about our local postperson and how they help us and about times when we visited the post office in our town. We watched a video about 'The Journey of a Letter'. The postpeople are very busy working day and night to make sure our post arrives safely.
An Post are running a handwriting competition and we decided to enter. The theme is 'A Day in the Life of a Postperson'. We did our very best handwriting.
We put our handwriting entries in an envelope. We didn't need a stamp because it was a FREEPOST envelope. We walked to the post box to post it ourselves.
We recognised the post box straight away because it is green and it has the word 'post' on it. We noticed that the collection time for letters is 4 o'clock in the afternoon. We also noticed a key hole. The postman has a key to open the post box...we're sure he keeps the key in a safe place!
We posted our letters. A kind man arrived at the same time as us and we helped him to post his letters too. We know that our letters will be in Dublin tomorrow.
