Pen pals!

Some of the letters we wrote

When we came back after Christmas break Ms. Golden told us that we were getting pen pals. We were so happy and excited to hear this. Our new pen pals are from Dublin and go to Holy Child N.S. There are 32 children in their class and because there are only 24 in ours some of us got two pen pals.

We got to see their school website and look at pictures. It’s fun to see work from other schools. Over the last two weeks we have been learning how to write informal letters, after practicing different ones we were finally able to write the first draft to our pen pals. When they were corrected we were given paper and we wrote our proper letters.

Such a fun way to learn about letter writing. We decorated them after to make them look nice. We can’t wait to get a reply from our new friends.
