A Class Read for ReadWritePerform's Picture Postcard Pack

The latest ReadWritePerform pack - Wish You Were Here: The Picture Postcard Pack - is now available to download.

This Unit of Work is aimed specifically at Key Stage 1 but can be adapted for lower Key Stage 2. Through reading, deconstructing and then writing a postcard of a recent holiday, children will then perform their postcard as a greenscreen video and link it through Augmented Reality to create an interactive video postcard. Each app has a step-by-step guide for teachers who may feel less confident using the technology.

The aim is to cover all elements of the English curriculum in an engaging and purposeful way using a variety of media.

Here is a snippet of the final piece of work your pupils will create through using the pack:

Within the pack, we recommend some books that complement the pack really well. We recommend you using these as your class read as there are many links between the pack and the books.

Meerkat Mail - Meerkat Mail is a brilliant picture book from Emily Gravett, the winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal. It has wonderfully detailed, witty artwork and a giant, glossy postcard flap to lift on every spread. Perfect for meerkat fans! 

This one we would really recommend as the story is told through postcards. 

Dear Dinosaur - After a trip to the museum, Max writes a letter to his favourite dinosaur, the mighty T. Rex - and the T. Rex writes back! As Max and T. Rex learn about each other's lives, a very unusual friendship develops in this funny and touching story from an award-winning duo. Dinosaur fans will love this interactive picture book with letters and cards to open, and dinosaur facts to discover along the way.

The Jolly Postman -  The Jolly Postman delivers cards and letters to various fairy-tale characters. He has a letter of apology for the three bears from Goldilocks, a postcard from Jack for the giant, a solicitor's letter on behalf of Little Red Riding-Hood for the wolf who ate grandma, and so on. There are six envelopes in the book, each containing letters, cards, postcards, etc.
