Week 4

Postcard writing

Following on from last weeks VE Day postcards I would like you to have a go at writing both a factual and fictional postcard this week.

Firstly it would be really useful for you to look at the power point presentation below to remind you again about what to include in a postcard and how they are laid out.  Once you are comfortable with what is expected of you then please complete the tasks below in any order that suits you.

Task 1 - write a factual postcard to a family member or friend

I would like you to design and write a postcard to send to a family member or friend telling them about what you are up to.  Perhaps you could tell them about the things you are doing to keep busy, what you are enjoying about being at home or in fact what you are missing.  You could ask them how they are and perhaps suggest something that you would like to do with them once the lockdown restrictions are eased.  Once you have made your postcard, including a wonderful picture on the front, then put a stamp on and post it off!

Task 2 - write a fictional postcard to your class teacher

You are beginning to have a good understanding of what life might be like in Kenya.  I would like you to imagine that you are visiting the country on holiday and want to send a postcard back telling us all of the exciting things that you are doing and seeing.  I have attached an example for you to look at below.

Making your postcard

You will need a piece of card that is 148 x 210mm.  On one side you will need to draw an amazing picture showing the lucky recipient what you are doing.  On the other side will be your writing where you will need to set the postcard out carefully.  I have attached some templates for you to use as examples below.


Keep sharing your fantastic work with us on the class blog.
