Writing a postcard in the Victorian era was a bit like writing a Tweet or a text message today. It is saying something in a very small number of words.
A visitor sent this postcard message from the Clifton Suspension Bridge:
“I went over here yesterday. The scenery was lovely from the bridge, the wood at the side is called
‘Nightingale Valley’ as the birds sing there so beautifully, the people look so tiny down below.”
We’d like to challenge you to design, decorate and write your own postcard!
- Who do you want to send your postcard to?
- What have you done that you can tell them about?
- Have you been somewhere new?
- Have you met somebody new? Tried a new food? Tried a new hobby?
- Or have you seen something funny? Or just had a good time with friends?
- What have you done recently that they would be interested in?
Think about how you can write this in not many words – Make sure you remember to leave space to say who it’s from!
