Pen pals in Reception

During the last half term Reception started to make some international links with the United Kingdom. To establish the international links Reception have created a new pen pal scheme. This involves all of the children writing a letter to a school child of the same age in Derby, England.  It provides a fantastic opportunity for the children to develop their English writing skills.

Reception had great fun writing their first letters to their new pen pals in Derby. They completed an  ́All About Me ́ sheet which tells their new friend some key information about themselves. Reception are eagerly awaiting a response from their pen pals and are excited about the letters they are due to receive.
