Home Learning 16-03-2010 & an exciting opportunity

16 Mar

Apologies for not posting home learning on Friday.  I needed to confirm an exciting opportunity for Friday.  So here is this week’s home learning.

On Friday we will be taking part in a video conference with an Iranian teacher living in the UK.  We will be able to discuss what life in Iran is like and ask her some questions of our own.  What can you find out about Iran?  Where is it?  What languages do they speak?  What is the capital?  Add your responses to the blog as comments or add them to a Wallwisher linked here.  Alternatively, create a little factsheet about the country, or write down some questions to ask our video conference visitor.
