There was great excitement last week when a big, red box arrived to our Year 4 class in Pendoylan. We were all wondering what was in it? What a surprise to us when we saw our German friend Alex popping out of the box!

Big Meeting

Today was a big bear meeting in our class. Everyone of us was allowed to bring his/her teddybear. Even though the bears all were from different countries and spoke different languages, they communicated a lot and had much fun.

Alex enjoys his time in Year 2

Posted by Miriam Tulloch, 05/04/2019

Alex came to join us in Year 2 this week and he had a great time. The boys and girls made him some cards to make him feel welcome. Alex helped us to locate the country he comes from and the city he lives in on google earth. He enjoyed making a boat with children and finding out about the continents of the world. Alex spent some time in our reading corner and helping us with our spellings.

I don't think that Alex is very impressed by the British weather. Today it has been raining and he has been teaching the Year 1 children all the different German weather words. I hope it'll be sunny tomorrow!
