Encouraging links between students and school staff around the globe
All Year 7's this year due to timetabling issues, but once I got them started they were away. The only down side really was because they needed more input I had no chance to take photos - still, all stories written and uploaded so good luck to St. Benedict's - you'll be awesome :)

Never less than totally manic fun, today's challenges included two of the Y7 students I'd invited turning out to be going on trips, and the HPV jabs taking place in the Learning Centre all morning (which we worked around!).

So having concluded that our missing paragraph was gone for good, Samantha was so keen to make sure we didn't let the side down that she rewrote their entire entry last night at home and brought it in this morning! What a star!

Brilliant and most enjoyable experience, but was having so much fun with the students I totally forgot to…Continue

"We thought the New York students might be disappointed not to get to finish stories so we left our ending open so they could finish it if they wanted. We're sorry if our story is a bit bloodthirsty but when we saw what other people had written that just seemed to be the way it wanted to go."
