Check out the stats for our class blog yesterday. We had 365 individual visitors in one day which is a new blog record! That is an incredible amount of people for one day and shows our class blog has a real global audience.

Today 3D were lucky enough to skype Discovery Bay International School in Hong Kong. The reason we skyped them is they are hosting our class mascots the snail and the whale.
We exchanged questions and talked about the differences between Hong Kong and New Zealand. Would you believe that their school is 10 stories high and has a swimming pool on the roof!
Thanks Discovery Bay School, we enjoyed learning with you!

This task is compulsory for the whole class as everyone needs one for their blog. So what are you waiting for? Lets get creating!
