Good Morning Callisto Class
I hope you have all signed the daily register - hidden in the pages today there are 9 scrabble letters to find. Use these letters to create your own boggle board - what is the most valuable word you can find?
Well done to the Boys who won our class TT Rockstars Battle - it was close! The final scores at the end of Monday were Boys 9, 470 vs Girls 6, 296. A special well done to Alexander and Isabelle who were the highest scorers in this battle.
