Our first live video conference

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.
