Hi Lynda, I think it went well......... the pupils certainly seemed to enjoy themselves, especially talking with your pupils. It would have been nice to have spent a bit longer, but I was worried if we didn't get started they wouldn't finish the stories. We were cutting it a bit fine with some of them as it was!!
Hopefully next year we will be able to see you better on the big screen, as I am promised the video conferencing will be up and running by then!
what a day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was really worried and got here before eight in the morning. The worse problem was a serious cable damage which resulted in NO INTERNET. I went balistic. What a bad luck! I did everything I could. Phoned everyone in school and at the end, 5 minutes to our time they fixed it! Ufa! as we say here! That was close. I had printed the stories and the kids started reading them before lunch and just after they began writing. They are good kids and next month they will be sitting their Cambridge exams. Do you think we were the only non-native speakers?
Thank you for the support and for your video comment, they LOVED it!
I have to take the kids home and come back to school for Teacher´s day celabrations.
Talk to you from home tomorrow.
P.S. as we had IT problems we did not experience the conferences , pitty!
It's a shame about Skype isn't it! We'd love to ring if that's possible and send a picture. Our students have been chosen from different classes by their English teachers who get them to write an opening parargraph of a story! so we won't have apic till they arrive in teh libray at 12.00. could we phone at 12.05 and hand the stories on that way? Our library number is 01225 734248. I'm getting excited now Nicola
Hi Nicola! Things are slow here - one teacher has lost the paragraphs the children wrote fot my 'competition' to be selected to take part... I'm struggling to get names and she has set 1. Everyone is so busy at the moment. Letters have not even gone home yet and will have to go out tonight and be brought in tomorrow! Going scatty... excited but scatty!
It might be best if I wait for you to phone me if that's OK, then I won't be interrupting you. Our number is 01772 252072.
Can't believe it is already the day before!
Hi Nicola - I was getting confused earlier (had such a manic day!) and was thinking that you were before me, not after! I will do my best to call you as near to 12 noon as possible! I have just met my 12 Y7s today but will try to get a picture up tomorrow, they should come see me during Registration for a better briefing. Hope I can get myself organised for tomorrow! Chat then, Lynda
