We're Back!

We're back from our holidays and happy to be at school for our last term of Grade 2!

Mrs N had a very exciting holiday. She went to South Korea and she brought us back some Korean lollies to try. They were unusual flavours like pumpkin, cream jelly and sesame. We liked them! She also showed us what Korean money looks like. Their currency isn't called "dollars" like it is here in Australia. They use "won" (rhymes with "on"). 1000 won is about 1 Australian dollar.

The Smarties love to dance, so Mrs N showed us some Korean pop music (k-pop). We think they're really good dancers and we loved the catchy tunes.

Our school is participating in the Coles Sports for Schools programme. Each time we spend money at the supermarket, we get a voucher which we bring to school. The school can then use these vouchers to get sporting equipment for us. It's our class's job to count all the vouchers the school collects. This afternoon, we started sorting them into piles so that we can count them easily. It took us all afternoon, because we have SO many vouchers!

Love from The Smarties and Mrs N

  1. 1000 vouchers = 300 grams - May save on counting :)
