You can continue to work on any of the Home Learning activities that are on our Room 2 page on the School website. Keep sending your amazing work through to Mrs Booth and I – we love seeing what you are doing. Check your folders in our Room 2 Google drive and complete any work you haven’t done yet.

About the Author:

Teacher, mum and nana, that's me! I love being part of sharing learning in Room 2 at Poroti School, where I work on Thursdays and Fridays and also do some relief teaching as well. When I'm not teaching, I knit, sew and crochet, read heaps of books and bake for my family. We have chickens, fruit trees, grow our own vegetables and live off the land in a chemically reduced way - eliminating plastic and toxic sprays. I also make my own soap and body care products.
