Connecting with Other Classes – Our Stories

Our Stories

Our Stories was a joint blogging project between Oatlands and Berwick Lodge.

Each school created a new photoblog blog. All the children participating in the project had their own category. This made it very easy to find all the photos posted by a particular child.

Here are the links to our blogs

Sample Blog Post

Each child was paired up with a child from the other school. They read all of their partners posts and were encouraged to comment on them. They looked at all the photos posted by their partner.

Once they felt they had learnt about their partner they wrote a poem describing them.

We organised a Skype video call between the two classes.

The children read out their poems to their partners.

The students found this to be a very emotional event.
