More Global Connections

The children in Yr2 have been learning about 'Our Wonderful World', and this gave them an ideal opportunity to connect with other children around the world.
When I popped into their class they were chatting with children in a small international school in a very remote part of Russia (on an island in fact). They were able to share stories about their lives and identified the many ways in which they were just the same. Other aspects of our lives were also very different, and the children were all very curious about some of these.

Our Global Connections

Year 7 have been exploring their digital online lives. We've considered our roles & responsibilities, issues of safety and security, and the concept and importance of our Digital Footprints. Today we looked at hoe technology allows us to easily be connected to our friends and family. The map below shows some of the connections we have around the world.
