Just a very quick update, the children in this school as yet have not had the opportunity to start blogging so myself and the year five teacher have set up class blogs. Here is the link to my year 4 class http://aisyear4.blogspot.ru/ I have also set up a school podcast here http://audioboo.fm/AtlanticDubrovka. I will add a link for the year 5 blog when it is available.
Children learning a new language need to get the chance to communicate with a real audience, blogging and podcasting is just a start. I also hope to use http://www.technologytoteach.co.uk/useful-link/skype-in-the-classroom very soon
