Skyping

One of my favourite things to do is Skyping. I have been able to Skype with Mrs Yollis’ class at school click here to see a post on my class blog about the Skyping session. I have also Skyped with Royce from Mrs Yollis’ class at home click here to view my post about my game playing with Royce.

On Saturday the 19th of November at 8am Saturday in Leopold, Australia and 3pm Friday in Mobile, U.S.A. I Skyped with Greta from the University of South Alabama. Greta is studying to be a teacher in Health Education and is taking a technology class with Professor John Strange.

The Skyping session started with Greta asking me questions and then I had a chance to ask her some questions too. After speaking to Greta I had a conversation with Professor Strange. We spoke for about 20 minutes.

Thanks to Greta watch the videos below of my chat with her.

Here is a copy of our conversation.

How many times have you Skyped?

Where about in the world would you like to Skype with someone?

Have you ever meet a friend in person who you meet through Skyping or blogging?

My first time at Adventure Park

On Saturday the 5th I went to Adventure Park with my Dad, Mum and brother Tyler. While at Adventure Park I saw Paris from 2KJ and we got to go on some of the rides together.

Adventure Park was “adventureparkarfic”. There were lots of excellent rides to go on, I was lucky enough to go on:

  • mini golf
  • paddle boats
  • moon bikes
  • train
  • carousel
  • go carts, I got to race Dad
  • electric cars, I raced against Paris and her friends and Mum and Tyler
  • Rapid rider waterslide
  • River torrent lazy river
  • tiny tots splashzone
  • Bonito’s Bay waterplay
  • Six lane aqua race, I raced against Mum
  • My favourite ride was the River torrent lazy river, you got to float around the river on a raft. The scariest rise was the Six lane aqua race as you went so fast, Paris was going to race with me but she got pushed down by the water before the light went green.

    Have you ever been to Adventure Park or something similar?

    What was your favourite ride?

    What’s the scariest ride you’ve ever been on?
