So we have officially made the swap now, and it will be me (Ms. Emma) teaching the class full time from Monday. The children have really enjoyed having Mr L. and have shown great adaptability in the transition over to me. I look forward to meeting you all and working together to make this a great year for the children!

Milepost 2 Interhouse Sports Celebration - 'Kick - Ball', was a great success and the children enjoyed having the opportunity to share their new skills and knowledge with the parents. It was also fantastic to see all the parents getting involved and having a turn at the end!
