Where did that week go!
We have had such a hectic second week. We were very lucky to have the Family Trust come in to school to deliver a special assembly. We now have our new expectations displayed proudly in our classroom. We have completed a variety of assessments. Science has seen us experimenting with dissolving substances in different water temperatures and in Geography we have been finding out about where we live and our place in the whole world.
