Sending letters to Santa at Grasshoppers Day Nursery
Children from Grasshoppers Day Nursery in St Albans were delighted to write their very own letters to Santa, following an interest in how post is sent and received.
After writing of their wishes for Christmas and the New Year ahead, children from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on York Road researched where Santa lives, before posting their letters into a festive postbox, especially created by practitioners.
Grasshoppers Day Nursery Team Leader, Jodie Smart explained;
“The children had a brilliant time learning about the Royal Mail, and writing our letters to Santa has really helped us get into the festive spirit. This activity has also provided an excellent opportunity to develop vocabulary and practice writing skills.”
