We now have entries from 30 countries on the Schoolovision blog, and this week, all the children in all the 30 countries will have watched and voted for each of their favourites. This is a massive undertaking, and we in P5 were ahead of the game a little, by starting to watch and evaluate each of the videos last week. We’ll finish this later this week, and prepare our overall class results. These will be added to the votes from all of the other countries – which must be submitted to me by Thursday evening by email.
This allows me to total up all the votes, and determine the winners of the contest. On Friday morning, starting at 9.00am, primary 5 will lead a Europe-wide live webcam conference, where we go round the partner countries alphabetically and ask them to submit their votes so that all the others watching can hear and see what they are being awarded. At the end of this, the totals are announced, and the winners will no doubt be very excited and ready to celebrate! As has happened in previous years, I send a trophy to the winning school, which they can keep as a memento of their achievement.
In the meantime, if you wish to see all 30 entries in one go, have a look at the round-up video below.
6 minutes of pure joy.
That’s Schoolovision 2014!
