This term one of our main focuses has been to publish a magazine comparing similarities and differences of countries around the world. And…we’ve done it! We’ve called our magazine Global UPdate. The ‘UP‘ is for Upper Plenty. Our magazine has articles about life all around the world. From Germany to Tokyo and England to Canada we’ve got it covered.
We worked in teams to write the articles about all sorts of things, including literacy, foods, favourite things, numeracy, schools, fun and games, natural disasters, hobbies, sports and animals.
After weeks and weeks of planning and gathering information through emails and Skype we finally finished our articles! As we type this post they are being processed at the publishing company. The company sent us two ‘proof’ copies so that we could check that the layout is perfect and there are no spelling errors or typing mistakes. We get one more chance to see our updated proofs.
Once we have approved the new proofs the company will print 100 copies of our magazine! We have decided to sell them for $15 each. We have to pay the publishing company and would like to raise some money for a charity. Any profits made will go to Red Cross. This charity was chosen because they support children all around the world and children all around the world helped us write our articles.
Thank you to everyone who helped us with the magazine. We are looking forward to seeing our published magazine soon! If you would like to order a copy, please leave your details in a comment below, use the contact form (under ‘Contact’ at the top of the screen) or drop into the School office.
