Burravoe Primary School

Postcard Project


We are taking part in a Postcard project with Schools around the world where we exchange postcards and tell them what it is like living in Shetland. Last Monday we wrote some postcards to send to other schools. On the postcard I sent there were Orcas and Puffins on it.  We also got our first postcard from Class B4, Reefton School in New Zealand!

Here is the postcard from them!

White Kiwi

    Here is some information about Reefton!

    900 people live in their town!
     They have gold mines and coal mines.
     Nathan wrote the postcard, Thank You for the information Nathan!


  1. Dear Scotland,
    We like your class blog and we liked the sentence about the kiwis because we already knew it.
    Some of us weren’t sure what a puffin and an orca looked like, would you be able to put a picture of one up on your blog. One of us thinks that a puffin is a type of puffer fish. Someone else things a puffin is a type of seagull. I wonder if we are correct?

    We thought it was really cool that your post office was in someones house, we never knew you could get a post office in a house.

    We just had a quick lesson about the sun and the earth moving. Did you know that as we are writing this post, it is morning for us and you are probably all in bed asleep.

  2. Dear Kay
    Nathan was very excited to read this morning your blog post our postcard.
    White kiwis are rare in New Zealand, most of the kiwis are brown or greyish!

    Paige knew that orcas are whales, but none of the children knew what a puffin was. It is fun to find out about the animals that live in each place.

    Do you see many orcas or puffins near Burravoe?

  3. Great blog post and I like the way you have shared some information about Reefton but I think the poor kiwi is sideways!
