    • Chrissie says:

      The islands of Tanzania include Grave Island, an island almost built for a horror film, beep brown crisp leaves covering every place you step. (this is all true) It’s amazing seeing the graves and maybe you studied about a man which was bravely buried on a island and it’s about 3/4 hours off the coast of Zanzibar by boat.


  3. Hello we are from ferry lane primary school we like your blog and you are so lucky to hame a pool in your school. Guess what we are learing about EastAfrica if you know lot of stuff please tell us and I am from WestAfrica.

    • Chrissie says:

    My name is Jack Sloan and I am a teacher at Ferry Lane Primary school in London. My class (Year 5) have become interested in Tanzania and East Africa, and I would love to develop a blogging link with your school.

    Would it be alright for my children to write to yours, in the form of blog comments, or as emails?

    Please let me know as soon as you can, as I’m keen to get started.

      Hi Jack,
      This is Sam Wiriyaphong, a tech integration coach at IST. We have already created a link to your blog site on ours and I believe we have somewhat already started the blog link. We encourage our students to visit your blog whenever they can and blog comments from your students are most welcome, as you might already know.

      It is also possible to collaborate through Skype. If that is something you’re interested in, I can start by talking to the team. Keep in mind though that our Internet connection is slow and unreliable, so a level of flexibility is needed.

      Hope you had a good break and talk to you soon.

    • Olivia says:

      My name is Olivia. I used to live in England but not in Londen in Newcastle.
      Is their a special reason why your school is called Ferry Lane Primary School.
      Is your school International like ours or do all the children come from Londen or different parts of England? I heard on the news that the weather has been bad in England i hope that all the horrible weather has gone. Hope all is well.

      Best Regardes Olivia

    • awsomedude says:

      chat with children in your class when i’m free. πŸ™‚

    • Riham says:


      My name is Riham. Thank you very much for the offer about the bloging link. I think that it would an honor for Ferry Lane Primary School to develop a blogging link with our school (IST).

  6. Ms. AWESOME says:

    This sound exciting to help and work with people I don’t know. Here in Dar grade 5 is working on one specific unit every length of time, Africa we learned has many religious people such as christianity, muslim, and many more. Here in IST we are all friend. I’d love to visit your home page.
    Hope u had a good break!

  7. Ms. Awesome Jonas Head says:

    I would love to be in contact with people i don’t know. Being a new kid in Dar gives me a fresh memory of places i have been to and things i have done here. Here we normally focus on a single unit for a certain time. It gives us an idea of what happens in Dar. There are many different kinds of a religion here with a majority of muslims. Tanzania used to be Tanganyika until it joined with Zanzibar and became Tanzania. East africa is a great place to live in and learn about the world.
    Peace out,
    Ms Awesome Jonas Head
