The magic of making marks

This week the children have enjoyed lots of various markmaking from  creating big outdoor patterns and shapes with chalk, mermaid fabric, magic gel pads and paints. Besides all of this the highlight was definitely our visit to the post box and creating our own post box making our mark making purposeful. We thought about what came through our own letter box from food magazines to birthday cards and letters from friends. For all our mark making that went in our postbox we learnt about the importance of putting our name on it, whether it be a mark, pre writing pattern or letters. To end our investigation we explored how our post would get to the right destination going through sorting offices and then taking to our homes by the postman. I wonder if anyone will get any post soon?
