NEW MISSION FOR OUR BLOGGER-STUDENTS

Our French friends have got a new article about freestyle football on their class blog. It is very interesting! You can write a comment under it and do the quiz at the end to check your understanding.

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!
