French Pen Pal Day

This year we have been writing to a pen pal in France. We have exchanged Christmas and Easter cards. On Tuesday 23rd May they made the trip to visit us here in school. We exchanged flags and played board games together. We found a way to communicate with each other and used our French to say what we needed to say. We showed them around the school and then ate lunch together. We then took them into the playground to meet other children.  After this we went to the classroom where we showed them the smart boards. We played a French and English word game. They were very impressed as they have nothing like this in their rooms. All too soon it was time to say goodbye. We sang them a final song and waved them off. We had a great time and hope that next year we can visit them.
