4A at Tollgate School, Eastbourne UK

We are a Year 4 class on the (sometimes) sunny south coast of England.  We love finding out about other students in our Global community and are very excited about being involved in this project for the first time.  During the last academic year our teacher linked with 7 schools and discovered that school life can be very different, but also surprisingly very similar no matter where in the world you live.




5SK Learning in North QLD

We are a year five class learning in Bowen in sunny North Queensland, Australia. Our town is famous for its yummy mangoes which we eat in the summer months and our beautiful beaches. Bowen is just north of Airlie Beach and approximately 40km from the Great Barrier Reef. Fishing is very popular here! Bowen has its very own Fishing Classic which runs in September each year. Farming is very big in Bowen and we grow tomoatoes, capsicums, beans, pumpkins, chillis, eggplants, watermelons, corn and much more. Mining plays a huge part in our community also as many of our parents work at the local coal mines, railway and coal port.

Our 5SK blog has now been running for almost 3 years and houses all of our class resources, links and student work. This will be the 2nd GRA for Mrs Scharf and the first for the current 5SK students. We are all super excited to read Fish in a Tree.
