We are delighted that the package we sent to our friends in the Philippines at the beginning of December has arrived safely. The children seem delighted to have received some toys, toothbrushes and information about famous places in the United Kingdom. What similarities and differences can you spot between our school and theirs?
We have been busy making fact sheets to send to our friends to tell them more about the United Kingdom.
We were delighted to receive these photos showing that the box of resources we sent has arrived. The children look delighted to have received our stationery and we are so glad we could help them.
More replies and photographs from our friends
They were VERY excited to receive our letters (which took 3 weeks to get there). They have replied to some of us, please remember English is their second language. I think their handwriting and their English is magnificent.
We are linking up with Lagonglong Central School in the Philippines so we can learn all about life in another country. We have wrote letters to the pupils telling them about life in Thornhill and asked them lots of questions about life in the Philippines. We have taken photos of us outside our houses and also sent photos of the local area and the beautiful Lake District. We are very excited to hear back from our new friends.
