PenPals from Andover Central School

Great excitement! We had our first letters from our pen pals. Their school is Andover Central School in New York State, USA. We have written back with a brief introduction sheet and photo. We look forward to hearing from them again.

NZ Book Week

We have had a very busy week celebrating NZ book Week. We had two visiting authors come and talk to the children about their inspiration and the writing process. The children shared their favourite books and we wrote a school wide continuous story which will be based in the library. We ended the week with a parade - we dressed as a character from a book. Here are some examples of costumes from Super Six kids.
