New Zealand Skype Call


Young learners at the Isle of Portland Aldridge Community Academy have been very busy this term learning about food as part of their work within the International Primary Curriculum.

In East Base, one of the questions that came up at the beginning of the topic was about apples and how they are grown. To answer this question we had a Skype call with a couple in New Zealand who have an orchard. The children thought about what they wanted to find out and wrote down their questions. The Skype call was very successful and a lot of the children’s questions were answered.

Some of the children wanted to comment on what they thought.

“I loved the phone call” - Nathan
“I learnt a lot about apples” - Emily
“It was fun” - Max
A huge thank you to Richard for staying up late to speak to us!
