Our buddies from Wellington Primary School, England


2K has been emailing 3HLO, from Wellington Primary School, England this term. 3HLO is a multicultural class of 16 boys and 13 girls, who live in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England.

Each of us has our own buddy who we email each week. We have been sharing information about our school, friends and family. Also, we share interesting things we do each week and teach each other new things. This week our buddies taught us how to CC friends into an email and we taught them how to attach photos. On display in our classroom, we have our buddies’ photos along with a description for all our visitors to see.

We love hearing from them each week! We hope to one day meet them face to face 

3/4K Week 8 Activity

Hi 3/4k,

Today’s lesson we will be using the “Unique Australian Animals” Website to find information.

Looking through the website you will need to find:
1. 3 animals that lay eggs
2. 3 animals that are nocturnal
3. 2 animals that dig burrows
4. What animal will thump the ground with their feet to warn other members of their group that a predator is coming, such as a dingo?
5. What animal will bury themselves in any left over mud or soil to survive drought conditions?

We are going to use Google Docs to record your information. You will need to access the portal to find this program. It is very similar to Word.
