What’s this all about?  If you are interested in learning together with another class, solving problems together and students sharing their learning this could be a project for you to join.

By filling in the form you’ll then be sent your city/country school and class.  Each week there will be  different challenge for you to complete that will be put on this blog as posts and involve online and offline challenges.

The project will begin in term 1 and involve literacy, numeracy and other curriculum areas.

Classes will have different tasks to suit students and curriculum at different levels.  You can join in term 1 or any other term.  Your project can begin with this and then develop into your own collaboration with another class. Or you can simply follow the session suggestions.  Some sessions may give enough basis for two connections.

Our Pets

We found the conversation with Doncaster about pets very interesting.  Our kids were suprised to find out that kids in the city could have pet chickens!  We all liked the graphs you made.  We will post some pictures of our pet drawings later this week.

Hello 1/2 Kialla West

Hello Grade 1/2,

We are excited to see you all on Thursday, fingers crossed. I have included a photo of the class with a student teacher. I took the photo. We have 16 students in our class, a few were away when the photo was taken. There are 11 boys and 5 girls in the class, so lots of boys. Tomorrow we are going to write a list of questions we are going to ask. I have no idea what sort of questions will be asked!
