    Hi everyone

    I'm currently leading Geography and History at an inner-city London school and am looking to develop national and international links with other schools.
    Are you aware of any penpal websites or are you and your school up for getting in contact with another school via email/letters/etc? Possibly using skype on IWB ?
    Ideally i want to find schools in other countries too. Any ideas??

    Thanks everyone! [​IMG]
  2. Hi,
    Have a look at international schools award.
  3. I sent the TES web link to this page to a school in Alaska, where I know a teacher.
  4. Hiya
    Our school uses the website EPALs. You can set up a profile and search for schools around the world. Works very well as we have all of KS2 with separate email addresses linked to the website so they can contact their own penpal. All letters are monitored by the website and you can read and check the children's work yourself before they send the letters once you have set up the filters etc.
    Hope that's of help!
