The primary section went to a visit to the post office on 9th October, so how could the pre-primary section stay behind? The Prep teachers found it essential to help children understand the importance of a post office and since the children couldn’t go to the post office, the post office was brought to them! Today, 11th October, 2013, the Pre-primary section celebrated the Post office day.
The nursery and kindergarteners enjoyed themselves thoroughly in their amazing and ingenious way of converting a play-pen into the Post Office. Today children wrote messages on the post cards they brought with them, made colourful drawings and scribbled cute messages for their parents and made a trip to the in-house post office. Here, they bought stamps from the ticket window and pasted it on the envelopes, and then posted their letters in the letter box. Some children even went to the speed post counter to post urgent mail.
The children enjoyed themselves thoroughly in their make believe world and took on the role of the employees at the post office and their clients. During their role play, the children enjoyed playing the various parts and in the process, learnt new vocabulary, understood the process of writing and posting letters, and got a feel of things too. The children were all very excited and happy at the end of the day and would have had a lot to tell their parents when they got home.
And we’re sure the parents will be utterly delighted to receive their children’s first letter to them – soon! Look out for the postman!
