Welcome to 2021 Room 16 Year 1/2
Welcome to Term 2
Welcome back to term 2! I hope everyone had a safe and happy holidays.
This term, the classroom timetable has been changed slightly with Music now being on a Friday afternoon, rather than Tuesday. This change is due to Mrs Kelly being out of the classroom for part of the day every Tuesday. Mrs Kelly will be working in the role of Math Curriculum Leader in the school. Mrs Sarah Sims, who has previously taught at N.K.P.S. will be the teacher during these times. Mrs Sims will be following and delivering learning activities that Mrs Kelly has planned and prepared for the students.
There will be no News this term.
Assembly - it is Room 16's assembly item on Friday 14th May. More information will follow closer to the time in regards to the assembly.

Both year groups of students will be learning about Australian money and counting small collections.
