Watch the video and complete the activity
Brazil, India, Thailand… there are so many places to choose from, but I've decided where I'm going to have my holiday…
Hello from London! I'm having lots of fun. I'm staying at a wonderful hotel – it's my house!
I've been to see the Tower of London and I've been on a ferry down the River Thames. I've eaten the best fish and chips in the whole of Britain! Tomorrow I'm going to see a musical at The London Palladium.
Wish you were here. Love from Emma."
Do you wish you were here? And did you notice the articles in my postcard?
Right, I need to find a post box. See you later!
How to write a postcard
Emma's writing a postcard from her home town. Let's look at it more closely. When you write a real or electronic postcard to send to someone, remember to begin with 'Dear (name)' or 'Hello'. Then write about some of these things:
- Where you are (I'm in London)
- Where you are staying (I'm staying at a wonderful hotel)
- What you have done (I've been to see The Tower of London and I've been on a ferry down The River Thames. I've eaten the best fish and chips in the whole of Britain!)
- What you are going to do (Tomorrow I am going to see a musical)
- What it's like (I'm having the time of my life)
- Sign-off (Wish you were here. Love from Emma)
