Presentation Day Term 2 - 28.6.13
This week we held another presentation day. Once again the children in Year 2 have worked extremely hard to rise to the challenges to get closer to their homework goals. This week Rhodes and Jess completed enough tasks to get their bronze certificates, and Jess even had 6 more challenges - so she also receives her silver certificate!! That is awesome!!
Arlo made a fabulous helicopter for his recycled creation and Harry got creative with some cereal boxes to make a truck. Bree also made a decorated container to put bits and pieces in. On the whole everyone put in a great effort! Enjoy viewing our photos :)
