  • Possible answers to questions: We need to know our address in case someone must take us home; we are lost; we want to invite a friend to our house; to put on the back of mail in case it gets lost in the post. Others that need to know our address: our school; friends; post office; municipality; any shop where we have accounts. If lost go to someone you can trust; policeman; traffic officer; teacher. It is important to have an address so that people can find us via letters, transport.
  • Demonstrate to the learners the correct format for addressing an envelope. See the example.
  • Discuss the criteria in the assessment rubric before learners address their envelopes.

  • Tell learners that when labelling a drawing they write in 5 mm capital print.
  • The correct vocabulary and spelling will be the criteria used to assess LO 6.5, while the neatness, layout and correct sizing of letters will be used to assess LO 4.1
