Teacher's Message

Welcome to Room 3! Room 3 has 15 students. We have been focusing on learning routines and classroom expectations and how to use our equipment in class. The children are really enjoying swimming and learning our song of the week which changes each week. We work with our Buddy Class Room 9 twice a week where they are helping us to practise our high frequency words. The children enjoy doing art so feel free to pop in and see what we have on display in class.
