Benjamin We’ve moved into our temporary class. It’s great cause there’s lots of space and room. It’s good to start with some new friends. Kahn The marshmallow challenge was quite hard cause you had to test them when you put them up. It was a DECENT challenge!
Jibboo – This is an exciting chance to combine all our curriculum areas into one! You can read about this on our class blog in more detail. It will start this Friday and will continue from last term as usual.
