Making Global Connections

A Year 5 class in Sydney Australia has been commenting on our blog.  They want to make some global connections and ask the following questions:

What is your first name? Where do you live? What school do you go to?
Can you please tell me a little about a typical school day?
What activities do you like to take part in in your spare time?

our blog is http://year5rc.edublogs.org/

Please take some time to click on the link to their class blog – scroll down to the post about Making Global Connections and leave this class a comment.

Thanks
Ms H

By the end of today’s session, students should be able to determine whether a website is a reliable source of information or not.
