Steeton Primary School’s link-up with Australia
8:00am Saturday 5th October 2013 in News
Strewth! It’s g’day from pupils at Steeton Primary School, who have been learning about all things Australian.
Children in years five and six studied “A Land Down Under” as part of their creative curriculum.
They received a Skype call from Rebecca Whitford – daughter of the school’s key stage two co-ordinator, Susan Whitford – who lives in Sydney, and she answered questions about life in Oz.
Head teacher John Cooper said: “The children were amazed and excited to see Rebecca, on the big screen, all the way from Bondi Beach.
“It was a great springboard into their topic.”
Also the whole school sang Australian songs, led by Mr Cooper, who sported a corked hat and even tried to get a tune out of a didgeridoo.
