Introduction --:
This email project has been undertaken by the Third Class pupils in Edmund Rice Primary School and the third Grade pupils in Topsail Elementary School, Conception Bay South, Newfoundland, Canada.
This is part of the ongoing project work through the Stellar Ireland Schools Project, linking schools in Ireland with schools in Newfoundland.

The  project is primarily  a creative writing one, where the pupils in both schools send each other a soft cuddly toy. This toy then develops a  character and a personality of its own and over a given period the toy is brought home by the pupils. In turn the pupil have to write a report in a diary format, on what the character did and saw,while he was with them in their homes. The reports will then appear as a diary type activity. These reports will be posted on each schools web site so the pupils on each side of the Atlantic can log on to each others school website on  a daily basis and read about the adventures of their respective  cuddly toy on the internet.

So lets meet the two characters involved in this special adventure --:
