End of Year!

Dear Families of Room 21 
It has been an amazing year together and I cannot believe it has already come to an end. Every morning, I have looked forward to seeing the class come in and tell me their stories. Their bright smiles always made me feel happy and excited for the day ahead.
This year I have seen each child grow and develop an enthusiasm and love for learning. They have learnt to learn from their mistakes, try their best and always give 110%.
I am extremely proud of everyone and congratulate them on their amazing achievements in Year One. I wish them the very best in Year Two and look forward to hearing about their holidays next year.
I would also like to say a very big Thank you very much for your support throughout the year. We could not have had such a successful year without all of your support both, in the classroom and at home. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know your families.
I hope you all have a relaxing, safe and very well deserved Christmas break.
Thank you,
Miss Ailsa Lamb

Dancing and Swimming Lessons

Every Thursday, Room 21 has been enjoying participating in dancing lessons. We are having so much fun learning a variety of new dances.  Everyone is joining in and having a go! There are so many talented dancers in Room 21! We are very excited to show everyone what we have learnt at our Dance Party in week 10!


During Weeks 5 and 6, Room 21 also participated in swimming lessons at Belmont Oasis. We were all very excited to be going on a bus to the pool each day. Everyone loved being able to swim each day, especially with the hot weather. We all learnt so much over the two weeks and are very excited to have achieved so much. Thank you to everyone who helped to make sure we were ready every day!
