kids teaching kids

Today 6K helped to teach new blogging skills to 6R. The students from 6K found it very difficult not to touch the keyboard! All of the students enjoyed helping and learning with each other. It was fantastic to see everyone so focussed and enjoying the learning even though we had two classes crammed into one small room! 🙂

Where in the world is……..?

Find given cities on the Google Map and be as accurate as possible since precision will result in points in the end. But be careful, each level is more difficult and the tolerance in deviation decreases. And you need to hurry: There’s a time limit of about 10 seconds!
