We are doing this because it feels good and is part of our Grey Lynn School Values.
My class love it and their writing has improved - adding more and more details every week.
On Friday we got a letter back and the diversion therapist who we deal with had written back including something about each child who had sent a letter. Our class was rapt.
Our next step is to plan a visit at the end of the year and to keep this up next year as well.
Here are a few examples of what the class record. All photos and movies are student made.
Enjoy, Andrea - a very proud teacher.
