Term 2 Room 21
Welcome back to all the children and families in Room 21. I hope you have managed to enjoy your summer holidays and have a bit of rest and relaxation as well as family time. I look forward to an exciting year with Room 21 and I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child.
Stationary lists have been sent home with all students.
This term we will begin our term with a variety of tasks to learn about each other and where your child is in their learning. We will also have testing in Week 4 and 5.
