Current Events Thursday - New Money!

Today was Current Events Thursday for Room One!
Robbie and Lauryn were our news reporters.
They had gathered a newspaper article from the Nelson Mail about the new 10, 20 and 50c coins.

We wrote some fantastic reports on the new coins. Here are some of them!

We are having new money. The college boys were excited because they wanted to use the new money. They went to the dairy and they went to the fountain in Nelson and they dropped their old money in. They said “rust in peace”.

On the first of August all the people are swapping old coins for our new ones. They are 10c, 20c and 50c. All of the old coins people are throwing into the yellow and purple fountain and saying “rust in peace”.

College boys are swapping their money.
(You can use your old money until the end of August)
Some new shops wont take the new money.

Make sure when you are next in our classroom that you check out our new Current Events book in our Library Corner. It looks like this and we will be adding to it each week!
