Room 24's Class Web

For Week 1 in Room 24, we created our own class web! We talked about what the web represents and its importance to us as a class. We said that each line represents each person in our class and as seen in the image, all the lines are crossing one another. The lines crossing one another represent each one of us being a part of every other students life. Therefore, we need to support and encourage one another through our journey as Year 5's and 6's in Room 24. Awesome start Room 24! Let's make 2018 a year filled with great learning experiences and positivity!
