A parcel from Norway

Class 5 have a link to three classes at the same stage in Kirkevoll Skole in Bergen in Norway.
A package arrived from them and the children opened it up today.

It was full of letters and cards and drawings and things that the children had made.

It was very exciting looking at everything and finding out more about the children in Norway.

In their letters one of the things they told us about was the particularly snowy weather.

So we went outside to show them that we had been having very snowy weather too.

Have a look at the video of Class 5 opening the package on their blog.
