Today something very exciting happened…a mystery Skype! The first call came at 9:09am but we missed it! The next call came at 9:20am and we were set!
We turned our T-shirts around or wore other jumpers so they couldn’t see our school logo!
Before we asked our first question we noticed the Australian flag icon on our Mystery caller’s Skype account. We thought we were very clever! However, we weren’t completely sure they would be in Australia, even though they are originally from Australia.
Our first clue!
.We each had a special role to do during the Skype call. Our jobs were:
* Greeters, Question Askers
* Google Mappers
* Logical Reasoners
* Clue Keepers
Our Greeters and Question Askers
Earlier in the week we tossed a coin to see who would get to ask the first question. Our mystery Skypers called tails and it was heads. We were off to a good start
Our Clue Keepers
Our Logical Reasoners set to reason logically!
The rules were simple. We could ask any ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ question. If the answer was a ‘Yes’ we got another shot at asking a question. If it was a ‘No’ our Mystery Skypers got to ask us a question. We got off to a great start and got some ‘Yes’ answers.

We enjoyed the mystery part of the Skype, doing our roles and of course guessing Montagu Bay Primary School. It was easy at the beginning, really hard in the middle and easier at the end. Our final breakthrough came when we had narrowed it down to few suburbs and Kyle had a feeling it was Montagu Bay. He searched Google images for Montagu Bay and saw that they had the same uniforms! We’d done it!!!
Matching uniforms on Google images!
The hardest part was thinking of the questions once we ran out of our prepared questions. It was also hard using some of the clues we were given correctly. We got a bit confused with our directions!
We’d like to thank Mrs Smith and 4/5DS from Montagu Primary School in Tasmania for taking up the challenge of a Mystery Skype.
