Encouraging links between students and school staff around the globe
Ellie was very lonely since mum and dad had moved away from London to a tiny hamlet near the sea. Where were all the children? There never seemed to be anyone on the freezing December beach except a man with two big dogs and an old woman who talked to herself. Mum kept saying she'd soon make new friends when she started at the local school. But meanwhile all Ellie could do was wander up and down the beach, with the wind whipping sand in her eyes and the tide threatening to soak her new trainers. Then one morning, two days before Christmas she saw it - a glass bottle with a thick stopper in the neck lying on the sand by a pile of seaweed. But the most exciting part - the bit which made a thrill wash around inside her - was the rolled up piece of paper she could see through the glass. A message in a bottle, Ellie nearly shouted aloud. Now all she had to do was find a way to release the stopper.
