Icelandic visitors

This week we have had visitors from Iceland. Asgeir Ingi and Anna Karen are from the north east of Iceland. They came with their parents, Unnsteinn and Rosa, and Sif.

Unnsteinn and Sif  have come to Orkney to share the archaeology project they have done at Asgeir Ingi and Anna Karen's school.

Speaking English as your second language in another country - well done!

Anna Karen writes in Icelandic - the alphabet and pronounciation are different.

Counting to ten.

We learned from them how to count to ten in Icelandic and to say, 'Hello, my name is..., 'What is your name?' and we found out a little about their school and what Iceland is like. We showed them around our school. We hope that we will be able to make a link with their school and share some of our work with them.

Many thanks for coming to visit!


  1. I hope you can remember the Icelandic words that you learned because I want to hear them!
    Meeting people from another country is a great way to learn about their land and way of life. It will be good to keep in contact with them too.
    What an exciting time you are having in p7!

  2. I hoped you like learning the Iceland language.
