A big HELLO to our pen pals in Japan!

5th Class have been writing to pen pals in Japan since before Christmas. They have sent us two letters so far, and we are in the process of writing letters back to them a second time.

Their teacher, Emma, is teaching them English. Their English is so good! They’re also very good at drawing – our letters are filled with lovely pictures!

We’re really enjoying getting to know them – and finding out all the things we have in common. From the instruments they play to their favourite sports, the pets they have to the games they play online and on x-box – we have lots in common!

The main difference we’ve discovered is the time difference – they are nine hours ahead of us! When we’re coming into school at 9 in the morning it’s 6 in the evening in Japan!
