Year 5 Skype Hawaii

Year 5, who are studying volcanoes, learnt so much on Tuesday afternoon by talking to a retired journalist, named Frankie Stapleton, who lives on the volcanic island of Hawaii in the Pacific ocean. She moved there after the Second World War with her husband. She very kindly got up very early in the morning to talk to us at 2pm Leigh North Street Primary School time, (Hawaii time 4am!). She is a relative of Mrs. S. Knight who works at the school. She told us all about the history of the island and how it was formed. She told us what it was like to live there and how the presence of the volcano changes the way that she lives. It was a brilliant opportunity for all the children and they had loads of questions that they were able to ask and have answered.
