Melville Intermediate - Tutoring with Burham School

On Friday students of Melville Intermediate School are going to connect with students in Burham School in Christchurch. Although there's a distance of over 900km between our two schools we will be communicating together.

Melville Intermediate School has two digital Maori Classrooms, and three of these students spent a few moments before they started Technology this afternoon creating a short video with the phrases that Burham School would like to learn, this gives a chance for their students to practise before our schools talk on Friday. Normally we would rehearse with a lot more finesse but we are talking Friday and wanted to give Burham a chance to practise before we talk. It was filmed by Nathalie and Terrina from Room Eight and filmed in Room One on Wednesday 3rd November 2010.

  1. Kia Ora

    Thank you for teaching us a few sentences of Te Reo. Aramis, Grace and Dalton We are about to teach the class the phrases.We are looking forwarded to skyping with you.

  2. Hi our names are Aramis and Imogen. We had a good time with you we loved it. Room 2 had brainstormed some rules for a better skype next time.

    We are really still keen to learn more phrases, even if you are unable to skype again.


  3. I think it is so neat when places so far away can do things together because of technology. We learn from others so it is important to have other feedback and to be able to talk to them. I'm Caryn and I am in Dr. Strange's EDM310 class at the University of South Alabama. I was assigned to read this post but it was really cool, so I read so of the others also.
