An excellent Class Assembly
Well done to Class 1 on their excellent parental assembly yesterday. We enjoyed learning about their topics; the weather and seasons; animals and the zoo lab visit. We loved all the songs too! We were all very impressed with their knowledge and gained a good insight into their curriculum in class. Thank you to parents and carers who came to support them.
