This week was very exciting because we were able to go to the country without even leaving our classroom. We visited 3/4 M and their little buddies K/1T at school in Cootamundra which is a town about four hours drive south west from Sydney.

We asked them some questions about living in the country and learnt that some children live on farms. Mrs Moore, 3/4M’s teacher, wrote their answers on their Smartboard and we could see the writing on ours too. When we wrote on our Smartboard the children in Cootamundra could see that too. The teachers used their webcams so the children could see and wave at each other. The children from the country were surprised to learn that most of the KW children could speak another language. We will be talking to and writing with our country buddies for the rest of this term and we will be able to learn more about them.
