The post office plays such a part in all our lives, it's important for children to understand what it does and how it works.
So after learning about the post office in lessons, a party from Class three at Happy House School went to visit Watamu Post Office - which is where all the letters, postcards and parcels you send to your sponsor kids and our family arrive.
They were shown round every department and given a detailed insight into what staff do and how mail is sorted and delivered, plus the many other transactions carried out at the counter.
It was a fascinating and enlightening visit for the kid who throughly enjoyed themselves stamping letters and peeping into PO boxes
Teacher Md Russell said the visit had brought the topic to life for her students who were chattering about it all the way back and looking forward to discussing and writing about it when they were back in class
