Today Year 4 took part in the first ever Skype conversation between one of our classes and a class from a different school. We were lucky enough to share our work and ask and answer questions with a Year 5 class from St Augustine’s Junior School in Worksop, Nottingham. We have both done rainforest work so we discussed our knowledge and compared ideas. We also had time to ask each other about each school. It was an amazing experience and one we hope to be repeating across school soon. To be able to have a video-conference live with another class was a wonderful privilege from which we all gained tremendously.
Here is a wordle of our serial story in Year 4. All the posts so far have been put in and the more often a word appears, the bigger it is. What interesting vocabulary can you find that we have used so far?
Martin slowly opened his eyes not knowing where he was. The pirates that were once in the distance were now surrounding Martin. The Californians were nowhere to be seen. Martin pretended to still be asleep. His heart was pumping so fast he thought it was about to pop out of his chest. The pirates seemed to be arguing among themselves. Martin saw an opportunity so he ran as fast as his legs could carrie him into the gloomy forest.
Suddenly Martin fainted just below a twiggy tree. He was dreaming that he was back with his family then they got separated he went to the forest. His hands and head was shaking with fright. He awoke and said out loud “you can’t separate us” “wake up” “wake up” some little men whispered. “He’s okay put back your swords” ordered one little man. “Who are you” his hand was on his head beacause he was dizzy. “Weren’t little men extincd?” .The little man got out his sharp sword.
