Penfriends in Serbia

  Towards the end of last year students in our Elementary B classes worked on writing letters to exchange through the Cambridge Penfriends system. We were matched with the Busy Bee Centre for Foreign Languages in Novi Sad, Serbia, and agreed to base the topic around sports. 

  Busy Bee decided to actually post their letters to us (rather than scan and e-mail them) so it was a huge surprise when we opened the package from Serbia. Inside were twelve beautifully written letters, all in their own envelopes and with some of them containing little gifts of stickers, balloons and other items.

  It was such a pleasure to see the efforts the children in Serbia went to, that the next time we swap letters we might have to raise the bar on our won efforts!

  I have posted the letters our children sent to Serbia over on the gallery page, enjoy!

Vintage Teaching Puzzles

  When we took over the cafe next door, which became The Three Little Pigs, we inherited these two vintage teaching aids.

  Until now they have been gathering dust at the back of englishpool, but during a recent clean-up I decided that they would be better on display.

  So here they are, enjoy!
