Regular readers of this blog will know that I take my students on a one-off competitive fieldtrip around Bendigo, during which they use podcasts to complete tasks about the history of Bendigo, and hence, Australia.
However, I’ve got a particularly ratty (for the PC – energetic, students with different learning styles, cute) students and I need to get them out of the classroom more regularly. So, every 3 weeks we’re going out on the public bus into town and spending an hour at various locations. We had a minor glitch when 5 students failed to turn up at the bus stop, and being a public bus we couldn’t wait…needless to say it was a few students who I didn’t mind leaving behind.
John took us around and was an excellent guide, and the students really took to the tasks. At the end, 2 students that we’d left behind turned up, and one tried to skateboard down the gloriously smooth and hard aisles of the cathedral! He had a quick exit.
