Video Conferencing with Year 6

Today marked the start of a video conference project.

We linked up with Oakdale Junior School and Wanstead Church School.

We are planning on meeting up once a week after Christmas to challenge each others science knowledge. We will be teaching each other about the science topics we have learnt about and quizzing each other on our science knowledge.

Today we had the opportunity to introduce ourselves to the other year 6 classes. We had all prepared some questions which we could ask to both schools.

(Oakdale Juniors on Screen)

We did have a few initial technical problems but it was quickly sorted out and our 3 way Video Conference started. We had a few rules which meant that each school had to keep there microphone muted while the others spoke - this made sure that the school on screen was the school talking.

This was a great starting point to the project and we are looking forward to the next meet up.
