Miss VanArkel’s class skyped with a third grade class (Year 4) in Nottingham, England.
Miss Robertson, the classroom teacher at Stanstead Primary, has visited Georgetown on two occasions in the past. She was very excited to introduce her group of 18 students to our class of 25 students.
The students had the following questions for us:
- Why do we call rugby football?
- Why do we call football soccer?
- Why don’t we wear uniforms?
- What are our ages?
- What are our names?
- How many children are in our building?
- How many teachers are in our building?
- How do we get to school?
- What are our favorite colors?
We looked up Stanstead Primary on Google Earth and got as close as we could to taking a peak. Because the Google Mapping Car has not driven down the street, we aren’t able to get close up…but we are able to get close enough.
As we wrapped up our skype session, the children at Stanstead were preparing to go home for the day — they are six hours ahead of us!
Look for more news from the children in YEAR 4 on Miss VanArkel’s blog during the upcoming school year.
