An interview with my grandparents

This week we had some homework! Our teacher asked us to interview one of our grandparents and to take notes of the interview and put those notes into a powerpoint or to record the interview. Sebastian and his mum were happy for us to share with you, his interview that they filmed, in the link below:

Have you asked your grandparents any of these questions?
Were any of their experiences the same? Different?

How fast do you think you would be?
Are there any other skills that speed stacking could help you develop?
