    I learned about Australia

  2. Leona D.

    We learnt about Scandinavia. The thing that they have what we don’t is tomtes, they are like nomes but they are supposed to protect your family or your farm. The best part of the week is when we created a poster about the different things they do for eg in easter they would make heart-shaped bags to put their chocolate in and they don’t buy Easter eggs for Easter.
