Today we met Ben for the first time and gave him a very warm welcome. We listened to his story and told him our names and also where we are from. We looked at a map of the world to find out about his way to Germany.

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

Posted by Linda Westermann, 09/05/2019

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.
