We visit Cefn Fforest School

Today Mini-Dylan and Miss K were warmly welcomed to Cefn Fforest School. Moturoa and Mr H's class in Wales had been working together for a few years and it was great to meet some of the kids in the school that we had only spoken to via Skype or through our blogs- just like Dino had done in May 2007.
Here we had a line up of everyone- if you look carefully you can just see us in the middle of then photo. It was lovely to meet Bethan who had been the star of our article in the Times Educational Supplement in January 2007 about using Skype in the classroom. Thank you Cefn Fforest School for a fabulous welcome.
After that great visit Mr H took us to visit Caerphilly Castle. The castle was huge and very, very old. I could just imagine how it must have been long ago.
It was really grand- I wasn't game to stand underneath this part of the castle in case it fell down completely.
Mini-Dylan loved being home in Wales for a few days.
And then- guess what? It snowed on me- you might have to click on the photo to see the snow flakes but they were definitely there.
Mr H and I stopped for a photo shoot by the castle moat which had frozen solid in places. I am holding a bit of frozen moat.
