COMMENT EXCHANGE WITH OUR FRENCH E-PALS

A new fascinating online adventure has started for all our young and teenage learners! Our blogger-students (mostly aged 11 or more) have already left or are about to leave written comments on our French e-pals' new blog post about a very interesting sculpture. Some Spymasters have been brave enough to comment on the sculpture orally in a quick video we created in class.

Our French friends have also been working hard, commenting on various blog posts of ours and preparing their next post on Art. Some samples of the comment exchange on our school's blogs can be found underneath:

Freestyle football attracted all interest!

Talking about basketball

Commenting on 'Nightmare Before Christmas'

Amazed at 'Jumpy' the Superdog
