Rebecca’s blog entry
On Friday Ms Sullivan’s sister Lisa came over from Elko Nevada in the U.S.A.
We did morning maths and Lisa taught us how to do sums the American way. How Americans do sums are very different from how we do ours. Everyone thought it was hard at first but it was actually really easy once you got the hang of it.
We did an American circuit with facts, coins, books, and magazines all from Nevada.
Then Lisa went to pick up her brother from the airport, our teacher’s daughter came in for a few minutes, and then after a while Lisa came back and we got to meet her brother too!
Today we got our yard painted at last! We’ve been funding for almost a year but finally we have enough money to paint it. We’ve did Pitch Perfect, News Today and lots more. We have an adventure trail, chess, 4 corners, snakes and ladders and more!
Thank you for reading!
A visit from Nevada
On Friday we got a visit from Ms Turner, our teacher’s sister. Lisa lives in Elko Nevada USA. When we came in we showed her how we do Morning Maths then she showed us how American people do sums.
Lisa told us about the gold in Nevada and how it is microscopic and how you have to pay $48 for 25g of gold which is about the weight of a pencil! Then she showed us books on animals, plants, and gold mines in Nevada.
Then we had a circuit with books, magazines and even letters from kids in Nevada!! On the 3rd of June we wrote back and we also sent them Irish treats. We are excited to see what they think of them!! Teacher’s daughter also came in for a couple of minutes.
Then Lisa had to go and collect teacher’s brother from England. She then came back with Peter and he told us about England.
It was like a family reunion!!
Thanks for Reading!
