We have blogging buddies all over the world.
We visit blogs from Canada, America, UK, New Zealand and Australia.
We see the great world that is being done by children
in their classrooms all over the world.
One of the blogs we visit is Grade 1-2E Brilliant Blog.
From it we can see the ways our lives are the same and the ways we are different.
We see that children in Australia are interested in the same things we are.
They like the books we like;
books by Roald Dahl
and others like ‘The Wimpy Kid’ and ‘ Captain Underpants’.
However, in this school, homework is different for them.
It is optional. This means that they can do it if they like,
but they need not do it if they don’t like!
What do you think of that?
Each night they can do work based on a different letter of the alphabet.
For example on the evening where ‘L’ was the special letter,
a student called Liam,
built a lagoon out of lego.
You can see it here.
Another thing that 2nd Class, Room 6
Grade 1-2E have in common
is that their teacher is Irish!
Grade 1-2E Brilliant Blog is well named
because it is ‘Brilliant’.
In particular the class are very good
at commenting on their own blog!
So hello to our friends in Grade 1-2E.
Perhaps you might like to visit them
and leave a comment!
