tried a speaking and listening exercise where we worked in pairs so that one person spoke for 2 minutes about their favourite Commmonwealth Games related moment, then the other person tried to tell that story back again without forgetting any details (then we swapped over)
wrote down open questions to ask our partner
tried to record an interview in one go
We used the Easi- Speak microphone recorders to record our work.
We used Audacity to open and edit our files.
We also looked at how to upload a file to Audioboo, here is our playlist so far:

What The Commonwealth Games Means To Us
What the commonwealth games means to us is… Bringing different cultures together to play different sports and make the world a better place. I am looking forward to the games being in Glasgow because it will make Glasgow more popular and will bring more tourists and ideas.
The Commonwealth games means to me is that the countries used to be part of the British Empire. By Kyle

In Inchinnan Primary school we learn many interesting new things.
Sometimes for P.E we go into the playing field to play games.
Were always welcoming new people into the school and making new friends.
After school and at the weekends we play at the Inchinnan play Park. The Inchinnan play park has been rebuilt and it is much better and more people go to it.
I like my school because its fun and we are always learning new interesting things.
Its great because if we work hard and do really well in our work we get awards. This is our award board!
I like Inchinnan because there’s lots of kids around and there’s a park to go to.
Its very easy to get around and the playing field is good because you can bring your dogs along and play football .there is a lot of clubs for kids such as brownies,Guides,Cubs and Beavers.
We love Inchinnan so come and join our school,come to the park or come along to our clubs.
My name is justin and I live in Inchinnan and it is a good place for sport and games because it has a good play park with a football pitch.
