I have a big favour to ask from you all. A friend of mine has a child in nursery and they are asking for a letter.
If you can’t read it the basic of it, is that the children ages 3-5 are learning about different places in the UK and around the world. They are making gingerbread men and one of those naughty gingerbread men is going to escape and run away.
So the favour? They would like people from anywhere in the world to send them a postcard or a letter and write on the words “run run as fast as you can, you can’t catch me I’m the gingerbread man”
And send it to
All the boy and girls at
Park Drive Nursery
As the postcards and letters arrive they are going to talk about the country and the food so it links to what they are learning about it. I think it is an amazing idea, for us in the UK we are often insular and don’t learn enough about other countries (or other languages but that is a whole different rant)
If any of you would mind sending a little postcard (try to avoid rude ones) or a letter with those words on it, that would be amazing.
Just for the record this is not one of those things you see on facebook with I am teaching my class how far a message can go on social media type post, which never make sense to me. This is just getting a postcard from a gingerbread man who is exploring the world and its food.
