On Friday many in Room 10 arrived at school early (7:30am) in order to Skype with their epals at Ontarioville Elementary School in Illinois, USA. they live about 30 minutes drive from the city of Chicago.
Milan and Elijah wrote a report about it for the school newsletter:
This morning Room Ten Skyped their epals, they live near Chicago in the USA. We had some trouble pronouncing names but it was still lots of fun! We had to arrive at school around 7.30 to 8.15 am because of the time differences between us (they are 17 hours behind us).
We introduced them to Mr Knapman and they said Wow!! is that a real beard, so of course we said yes. We all got a turn to talk to the children. It was cool because their accents were awesome and they liked our accents! Before this skype session they sent us some gifts such as Magnets, Candy, and an awesome Chicago bears ball!! and even over t30 hand sanitizers, we sent them Whittakers chocolate.
We have been writing to them since the beginning of the year it has been a really cool experience for us in Room Ten. Epals are awesome!
