Australian Postcards Please!

We are hoping to connect with lots of different schools right across Australia for our topic work this term.

This will help our children to really understand what life is like today for their peers throughout Australia.

But for an old fashioned pen-pal style idea we welcome your postcards, because after all there is still something special about receiving mail – the physical kind!

If you are an Australian teacher or educator we would love to have you and your class send us a card. The postcard could be about your town, city or state or even a famous landmark you are close to.

We have two classes doing the Australia topic so if you could please send 2 cards one addressed to Mr Barrett’s Class and the other to Mrs Bartholomew’s Class.

John Davies Primary School
Barker Street,
Huthwaite,
Sutton-in-Ashfield,
Nottinghamshire,
England.
NG17 2LH

As we gather your cards we will photograph them and update your location on a Google Map. Don’t forget to add your class blog address if you have one – our Year 5/6 classes will be starting their own soon.

Please let us know if you can help and we look forward to seeing your cards in the post!

Hi I am a teacher from the foothills of the Blue Mountains in Sydney. I have a new app on my ipad called postcards and was trying to work out a way to use it. If you are still interested is there a school email that we can send them along to.

I have added this post as a bookmark to the OZ/NZ Diigo group of teachers so hopefully some in Aussie will spot this and be able to help out.

Hello from OZ! I am a Year 5/6 teacher and I have recently returned from a trip to England. My son who is 15 is still in England at the moment and my husband will be joining he next week. If you would like them to visit your class for a chat about life in Australia we might be able to arrange something. Also I would love my class to learn to skype with an authentic purpose and was wondering if you were interested too. There is a fantastic picture story book that is about a family’s experience of travelling… Read more »

Expect to see them within the next two weeks. If you’d like to check out our school website, it is http://www.sjbdow.catholic.edu.au . You can read about our Catholic Primary School.
