We've Got Mail...

How exciting ... we have received five postcards so far!


Cooper sent two while he was in Fiji.  The stamps on Cooper's postcards were of insects. We thought this was pretty cool after studying all about insects last term. We checked on the postmarks and found out that both cards took 6 days to arrive here at school...



Rory sent one from Rarotonga. The stamps in his postcard were Cook Island stamps and had pictures of pilot whales on them, which dwell in this area of the Pacific Ocean. Rory's postcard took 11 days to arrive...


We were super-duper excited to get another card a couple of days ago.  It was from 'Lynne' in Maine, United States of America.  She wrote a lovely note on the card - it's warm there (in contrast to our chilly winter), and there are deers in the fields.  We particularly liked the picture of a grand looking animal on the front of the card. We think it might be a moose.  If you would like to find out more about Maine, click here. Lynne's postcard took only 6 days to arrive in New Zealand.  We don't know who you are Lynne, but thank you...

Today we received a card from 7 year old Samantha, from London in England.  Her postcard was very well received with the children recognising the Royals in the picture after our mini-inquiry about the Queen last term, and the couple's recent visit to New Zealand.  Thank you for your postcard Samantha!



Can you find England, the United States, Cook Islands and Fiji on this map?
Our own postcards arrived from the printer, so we happily sent off our first round of requests today (and some special ones for our quadblogging buddies).  If you'd like to receive one of our super-duper postcards, let us know!
