Postcard Project

A walk in the sunshine to post our cards.

We have joined a new postcard project where we can send and receive postcards all around the world.

It was started By Mrs Leakey and her class in New Zealand. Click here to go to her class blog and read more about it.

We started receiving postcards very quickly after we had joined the project. So far, we have had postcards from our friends at Burravoe PS in Shetland, Hawaii and other American states, Canada and Australia.

Today, we posted cards back to all these classes and some more to those on the list such as Russia and New Zealand.

Some of the postcards we have been sent.

We used all this postcard activity to discuss the ways in which postcards differ from letters and looked at the layout and features of a postcard. We practised writing postcards to tell people all about Arbroath.

This postcard was to the band AC/DC.

  1. Thank you very much for our postcard which arrived at my house today. We have just started our spring holiday so the postie brings the school mail to my house when the school is closed. The handwriting on the card is beautiful well done! Its an interesting picture of an important part of Arbroath too. I like Arbroath smokies and had some in a pate when I was in Dundee last week. I went through Arbroath on the train to get to Dundee.

  2. Thank you for letting us know you have received your postcard. We liked yours too. We are not on holiday until next week. Have a lovely holiday.

  3. Dear Mrs. Stewart and P3S Superstars,

    Your fantastic teacher just visited our Techie Kids blog, so I just had to come over and visit you as well. It looks like you are doing a lot of exciting things in Scotland! Congratulations on being nominated for the blogging award! That is a very big honor. We are just getting started with the Postcard Project . Our first postcard arrived last Thursday. We are anxious to start mapping out each school’s location. It will be very exciting for our students to find the P3S Superstars on the map. I think that your large, labeled postcard is a great way to focus on the elements of this writing style. Would you mind if I shared this example with my students? I think they’d appreciate the visual. 🙂 I am looking forward to learning with all of you!

    Your new friend,

    I agree! We love to get comments from classes around the world too. Thank you for giving us permission to use your postcard reminder. If you’d be willing to send us one, we’d really appreciate it! Receiving your postcard from Scotland was very exciting! Another piece of mail from you would be icing on the cake. 🙂 You can watch for a postcard to arrive from Michigan, USA. The Techie Kids have dropped one in the mail to you! It was sent on March 31st. I wonder how long it will take to arrive…
