Pupils in Year 5 were very excited to receive their first letters from their French penpals this week. A link has been created with Ecole Contour Saint Aubin, a school in the city of Rennes in Brittany. Twenty five of our Year 5 children have written letters to their penpals, and I have had word that our letters have arrived safely in France! Our letters were written in English and we received the letters from France in French. The children had fun working out what their letters meant and seeing photos from the school in France. The first observation was the fact that the children in France don’t wear school uniforms! We look forward to strengthening our new friendships and the next correspondence will be Christmas cards!
