Thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes from all around the globe. Yes we do sing "Happy Birthday to You" with the same tune all around the world. I played the children from Wales singing me Happy Birthday in Welsh with the same tune and it was lovely. And the children of Moturoa classroom sung the song to me on Friday as well. We even have a tiny chime thing that we can take home to play if it is your birthday. For my birthday Raewyn (one of the teachers at Appleby) gave us three fish for the classroom to fill Jim's empty tank.We would like the children in Cefn Fforest School in Wales to name the silver coloured one.
And for the children in Mrs S's class in Binghamton School New York to name the gold coloured one. And we will name the other gold one with a black tip at the end of its tail.
Midnight arrived safely from New York today with much excitement. He was introduced to Mini-Dylan from Wales and will travel home with children once he has been shown around Appleby School a little more. We got straight in and started to reply to your letters. Thank you so much. We will post photos tomorrow.
