This week, we would like our Quadblogging partners to:
1. Look at our book reviews (below) - Have you read these books? What did they think of them?
2. Look at our pupils' websites and leave a comment.
The pupil sites can be found by clicking on Year 6 Pupil Sites.
Last week, we looked at and left comments on Brandon's blog. I hope you have had a chance to look at their replies.
This week it is the turn of Ms Kari's blog in America. We are sorry we haven't looked yet as our blog has been blocked from access this week, but we will make up for it today!
Look at their 100 word challenges and leave comments (If you have forgotten what good comments look this, click here)
Then click on their other posts and leave comments about what they have been creating!
Recently, Jodie and Lucy wrote a letter to our Classpals in Nepal.
We are very excited to have received their reply, telling us more about life at school there.
Can you think of more questions to ask?
Dear Year 6
Year 5 and 6 are about to start a new blogging experience: Quadblogging.
We are partnered with Miss Chapman's class (who we know well) and a school in America (I think), called Ms Kari's class.
We will take it in turns to comment on each other's blogs, beginning with Miss Chapman's this week, then Ms Kari's next week. Finally, in the third week it will be our turn!
In case, you've forgotten, here are some great tips on leaving positive comments.
Finally, here is a video about Quadblogging by some children:
What a fantastic week!
Internet Safety, lots of tests (not always fun, but we can see the progress we're making!), emails to America and that Netball competition!
Our star of the week this week was Kristen, who wrote a great email to our classpals and always gets on with her activities!
Meanwhile, in other news, our blog now has had 33,000 visitors from 96 countries (see the bottom of the page). I wonder if we can get to 100 different countries by the end of the year? Where will they be from? Success card for children who can work out which countries haven't been on our blog yet and find something out about that country!
Over the holidays, I received great news from our classpals in South Carolina: they are going to write us letters and we will have new friends that we can share with.
Keep checking your inbox for new emails!
In the meantime, here are their blogs if you would like to leave some positive comments.
Don't forget we will be creating our own websites soon and we want visitors from around the globe!
On returning from Howtown, we were very pleased to receive a Classpal letter from Miss Witherspoon's class in America. We then received a letter from new classpals in Orkney. We will reply after we have done some work on our new topic: 'Ho'way the Lads!' - all about famous people from our local area.
I spoke to Miss Witherspoon tonight also about opportunities for more links over the coming months!
Dear Year 6Today is HALLOWEEN!!! We wanted to let you know about how kids in the United States celebrate this fun holiday. We know that not everyone does, so he's a sneak peak into a typical American Halloween celebration...
Before half-term, Ryan, Jack and Drew wrote a letter to our partner school in Nepal. Here is their reply:
Hello Ryan, Jack and Drew,
Thank you for writing to us.
We liked the the second paragraph where you have written about our country Nepal. Also, we liked your invitation, but it would be very very difficult for us to go to England for economic reasons... Your 1 Pound is equal to 160 Rupees Nepali ... The normal salary of a common person is about Rs. 6000 per month which is about 38 British pounds. Only the rich business people make a lot of money.
