Hello everyone. Well it looks like the blog is back to normal? We have tried to add a lot of photos and our work and it looks like it is on the blog from this end and then it disappears. We are so disappointed as we have so much to share!
Anyway let`s hope we can get connected to each other now……. We cannot believe that it is nearly Christmas. We have just had a holiday last week for Thanksgiving and my class will tell you all about that. I was very spoilt as parents cooked a full blow Thanksgiving meal for me and brought into school for my lunch, and it was delicious.
Before that we had Halloween which is HUGE over here. Everyone dresses up and goes out Trick or Treating and I mean everyone…including lots of parents. They don`t just wear costumes, they dress their houses up as well with huge spiders and cobwebs crawling all over them and gigantic ghosts floating over the roofs etc. very spooky!
My class have been learning about lots of Scottish stuff, including Guy Fawkes and bonfire night which they found very interesting and very strange. We will be learning about St Andrews Day this week and also learning Scottish country dancing which is completely new to them.
We are having a joint American/Scottish class party as well in which we combine the kind of things we do at home at our parties and what they do here. So cannot wait for that.
The weather had been cooler the past few days and raining which we have hardly seen in the past four months, but it does often go back up to about 67 degrees by the afternoon, which is very strange.
Christmas preparations begin in the middle of November here and there are Christmas tress everywhere and Christmas music playing all over the place and I thought we started early at home!
Well, that was just a snapshot of life across the Atlantic Ocean and my class will give you lots more information here so lets hope we can keep in touch now!
