We enjoyed listening to your Maori song about body parts. We are learning Italian at St. Luke's and we will sing 'Head, shoulders, knees and toes' for you in Italian.
Great singing Room 3.
We found it a bit tricky to pronounce all the Maori words properly.

From your friends Prep S and Prep K

My name is Deena and I go to college in the USA, and I am in a class called EDM310. I really enjoyed your body parts video! It was really neat to watch! I like how everyone was doing all the hand movements too. I really like learning and hearing different languages. Great job on your song!

Hi! I am a college student from a university in Alabama, USA. I have a blog as well as part of a class focused on technology for teachers. I love your ideas of using technology in the classroom. I think it is an excellent idea for the children to create a video rather than merely posting by typing on your partner schools' blogs.

I think learning to sing a popular song in a different language is so neat, especially for people like me not even from New Zealand- and definitely not familiar with Maori! The children were brilliant, and I loved everything about the singing.
