They wrote atleast five sentences in their letter and then sealed it in an envelope for posting. A small set up was arranged as a post office. One student played the role of postman wearing the costume. All students came out from their classes in a line, formed a queue, gave their letters for stamping and then posted those in a letter box. They were very excited about posting the letters.
