When we got back to class,we drew pictures of Guzzler and ways of saving energy to send to our penpals in Uganda.They sent us pictures of how they help the environment.Where they live ,there is no electricity so their pictures were very different and very interesting.We saw videos of them singing and doing brilliant dances too.

Tanya came to visit our class today to tell us all about Germany. We had a wonderful time learning all about Germany.
We saw where Germany is on a map. We saw the German flag (can you guess from this teddy what colours are in the German flag?) We heard about castles, schools, cities, apartments and houses, and we were fascinated to hear that children in Germany don't start school until they are 6 years old (some of us wouldn't even be in school yet if we lived in Germany!) Those of us at school would have no uniform!!
We heard about Christmas and Halloween in Germany, and we even learned some German words. The words we heard were quite long compared with words in English. We think speaking German would be rather difficult, but after hearing all about Germany we would love to go there.
We are very much looking forward to visiting Germany some time in the future. It sounds like a lovely place in which to live or visit. Thank you so much Tanya for telling us all about your wonderful country!
