Seesaw Blog

This year in Room 8 we are using Seesaw. Seesaw is a brilliant way of sharing some of our learning that we are doing in the classroom with our families outside of school. We are posting things to seesaw everyday and this term we are going to use Seesaw Blogs. Please feel free to pop in and view our Seesaw classroom blog to see what is happening in Room 8!

We hope everyone is having a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday!

Over the past four weeks, we have been incredibly lucky to have had Kendall and Kelvin come in and spend some time with our class, teaching us new games and activities that we can play that are fun, and that support us with learning new skills in sport. The children of Room 8 have absolutely loved it. There is no doubt we will playing many of these games in our classroom!
