Congratulations to Class 3 on their Class Assembly
We all thoroughly enjoyed our exploration of the continent of North America with Class 3’s assembly this week. We were impressed with their factual knowledge, descriptive writing, science and wonderful singing. We gained an excellent insight into their learning in class. Thank you to parents and carers who came to support them.
Parent Teacher Consultations this week
Thank you for your excellent attendance and feedback. The children enjoy sharing their books and learning with you. Your continued support is much appreciated.
