On Friday we reached over 2000 visits on our class blog. This is a great achievement in less than 6 months. We would love to thank everyone who has taken their time to check out what has been happening in 4EK. We have loved sharing all our learning with the world. We especially love sharing everything with our blogging buddies and Skype buddies.
We also had a little party to celebrate this fantastic milestone. We hope you continue to look at the fantastic learning we are doing.
On Friday, 4EK had a Skype session with another year 4 class in Sydney. This was a fantastic Skype session where the students shared, and compared the similarities and differences between both classes/schools. One of the biggest differences between both our schools was that their school was a Bilingual school where they learnt Korean everyday. We can not wait for our next Skype session.
What were some of the similarities we discovered between both our classes?

Today was a very exciting day for both the students in 4EK and 4B. It was our first ever Skype session.
If you are wondering who class 4B are they are 4EK’s Blogging buddies. We have been sharing our learning with each other this year. Miss K and Miss T organised the Skype session. Both classes shared what they are doing for Genius Hour. This was a great experience, were the students finally got to meet/see the people they have been blogging to this year.
We can not wait to have another Skype session with our blogging/Skype buddies 4B.

This week our school went Google. This means we are a Google for Education school. Our school is now using Google Apps in our classrooms. We have been looking at Money this week and one group of boys were set a mini project to investigate Money from around the world, the different currencies and comparing money from around the world to our Australian dollar. Below is the boys presentation that they created.
This presentation was created through Google Docs, where the boys worked collaboratively together on the same document both at school and at home.
