Visit to Upper Moutere

We had an awesome time visiting our penpals in the country. Thanks very much to everyone at Upper Moutere School and special thanks to the parents who made the day possible.

Unfortunately we lost the tug of war but we are confident that we can win next time, when our penpals visit us in the summer!



The girls are giving it their all!




















Come on boys!

















The Upper Moutere celebrations!

.....and then a chat before lunch.

Can you spot the mistakes in the basic facts homework?

Make sure you correct them before learning them.

Sorry!
