Wilbur at Frankfurt International School

We have finally made contact with a class through Wilbur!
Last week we received a bundle of letters from Grade 4 students at Frankfurt International School. Many of them have parents who come from quite different parts of the world and the children often speak lots of different languages as well as German and English!

We have written letters back to them and hope to keep up the contact.

Wilbur visits Anzac Cove

We have heard from Dr Potaka and Wilbur. Wilbur spent an afternoon visiting sites in Gallipoli. Here he is amongs some flowers at ANZAC Cove. We hope to find out more about ANZAC Cove on the Internet.

We have been looking at our Inquiry work for next term under our theme Local Global and Connected. In Term 1 we looked more closely at our school and what it meant to us. In Term 2 our focus will widen and look at our connections with other places around NZ and the world.
With Dr Potaka going overseas during Term 2 we have taken the opportunity to send our Room 3 mascot or ambassador, Wilbur, with him to schools in other countries so we can establish contact with other children overseas.
Before we gave him to Dr Potaka we took some photos of Wilbur around our school – in the adventure playground, watching children playing, resting against the lime trees at the front of the school, and in the classroom. You can follow Wilbur’s travels and adventures by visiting Wilbur’s blog regularly.
