Of course, as long as you have permission from the school or class teacher. We find Paddington's Postcards a great tool to teach your class about the world, whilst also bringing the joy and excitement of receiving mail addressed specifically to your child's class. Simply enter a name like "Mrs Smith's Class" or "Class 2R" in the postcard addressee form and select "I am not entering a child's data" when prompted. 

Your child's journey begins with a welcome pack, including a letter, world map poster, travel journal, stickers and a postcard from London.
