Our current role play area is a post office and the children wanted to find out more about the jobs of postmen, so we invited the local postman Toby into school. Toby showed us all the post in his van and explained how he uses the addresses to know where to deliver it to. The children were then allowed to sit in his van and had time to ask Toby lots of important questions (like does he have a cat?!?). Toby also brought in some photographs of the sorting office in Tonbridge. He told us how the machines sort all the post and then where the letters that get delivered to Fordcombe are kept ready for him. A big thank you for Toby for giving up his time to come and see us. We have posted our own letters today to see how long it takes for them to reach our houses!
