  1. Hello from Portugal!!! I’m amazed by Tanzania mainly since my mum was there few years ago and brought me some lovely arts and crafts from there. Plus i’m a snail mail penpal for over 30 years, and i’m looking 4 snail mail penpals in Tanzania for many years. I would like to b able to swap snail mails via the old way, and if possible also to swap items like postcards, photos, stamps…etc with people in Tanzania.

    We are learning about other people and places in the world. We compare things at our school with other schools and communities.

    We would love to hear from you. We don’t have long in school for this year. Our school year ends on June 10th. We return August 25th as third graders and many will be in other rooms.

    Our school has about 850 students. There are 8 second grade classrooms. We have 19 children in our classroom. We are a diverse school.

    I’ve just found your blog via the Room 8 blog. This is fantastic, my class (Year 4 in Manchester, England) are currently studying your neighbouring country Kenya. I’ll show them your blog next week as it will greatly improve their understanding of east Africa.

  12. Hello, we were delighted that you left a comment on our blog. We are quite a new blog and are just starting to get noticed now, it’s very exciting!

    We were really interested in reading about your secondary school diving with the Whale Sharks (we just found them in our game last week). We would also love to link up with you and look into how we could have a web-chat at some point about the topics we are both doing. It would great for the children to be able to experince something like that in the classroom.

    Thanks again for your post and we look forward to reading more . . .
