Well the kids have started to receive emails from their Italian pen pals. They are asking each other relevant questions such as:
- What is school like for you in Italy?
- What things do you like to do outside of school?
- What are your favourite subjects?
- Do you have brothers and sister?
I guess at this point in time they are finding their feet with one another and trying to overcome the language barrier (thank goodness Epals offer an inbuilt translator in their email package).
My partner teacher, Livia and I want to give the kids a couple of week to get used to emailing and then we shall set a set question for pairs of children to research and work on together.
