Greetings from Moscow...

Hello Bloggers,

I had my bags packed and I was ready to go.  I couldn't wait to get on the plane and head off to Moscow.

I met some new friends on the way from other schools in Ireland.
We flew from Dublin to Frankfurt and then on to Moscow. (Can you tell me where Frankfurt is?
Finally we arrived in Moscow. It was a long flight yesterday.
We arrived in very late last night so I didn't have a chance to send my message last night. We didn't get to bed until 1.00 in the morning. We were very tired this morning when we had to get up at 6.30. Yikes!!

We arrived at the hotel for the forum this morning and got to work putting our stand together. 

Ms McHale had brought loads of information, the lovely posters, some photographs of all you guys working on your project and sharing your learning, and some souvenirs from Ireland to share with the other teachers at the forum.

Can you see me at the stand?

We have been meeting with people all morning and lots of other are interested in our Blog.  A teacher from Russia wants to do a bird project with her class now because of all your hard work.  She's going to be looking at our blog to get some ideas.  We'll have to keep up the good work.

Don't forget, this is a competition, so Ms McHale has also been talking to the judges about all your work.

It has been a very busy morning.  So I'm off now to look at all the other exhibits and get some great ideas.

We hope you're all working hard,

Bonnie the Bear

  8. Dear Ms. McHale,

    I have been following your blog and am delighted both you and Bonnie have arrived safely. You must be very tired but no doubt very excited as well. I am piggy backing on Louise's message as I had a problem(again!) getting through on my own e-mail account - sorry! I came over to your class and we all looked at the blog together.
    I spent the weekend watching a blackbird collect all the material for her nest in my garden.
    Your class are doing great work here and I am just listening to them reading poems on Life. They are very good and are going to make a book of poetry to show you.

    Take care and I hope Bonnie is behaving himself,

    Ms. Breen
