Skype Australia

Today was a very exciting day for Room 14 because we skyped Miss Cashen's class in Australia. They are a Grade 5 and 6 class at Lightning Reef Primary School. Here is a link to their class blog.
Here is Room 14 waiting for it to be 1:45pm so we can ring Miss Cashen and her class in Australia. It was 11:45am in Australia. (We thought it was funny because we had finished our lunchtime and they hadn't had their lunchtime yet!)
We read them this story because its about trees that are native to New Zealand. Thanks Whaea Tash and Room 11 for suggesting this book to us.
Here are some of the photos that Robert took of our Skype session.

Here is a short video filmed by Tarn of us skyping Miss Cashen's class. They were a super audience. We are hoping that next week they skype us and read us a story.

  1. We liked watching the vimeo of The Little Kowhai Tree. Anna, we think you used great expression when you read the story to Miss Cashen's class. What did they think of the book?
    We are going to go check out Miss Cashen's blog today in the orchard. Also we skyped Whaea Linda this morning and she needed to clean her camera. We thought that was funny.
