Class Blog Spotlight: St. Mary's Rathmines

I came across this blog from form 4'  at the junior school in St. Mary's College, Rathmines. It's an interesting one as it is shared between this school and another in Spain. 

It's clear that both teachers and classes put lots of work into this group blog. It's great to see lots of PowerPoints made by the children featured on this site. Some of my favourites are the "get well soon" messages to one of the pupils.

There are also PowerPoint presentations that the children made on topics they have covered in class that would be of interest to pupils in Spain. This is a great way for children to use their IT skills and for their teacher to assess their learning in an enjoyable manner.

I love how this blog has a mix of cultures with both classes describing their schools, their interests and their school trips. It's a brilliant way for children to learn about another country and to think more about their own culture.
