Welcome to 6OO’s blog for 2013! This will be a space that we are able to communicate our learning with each other, our families and the world! Sometimes you will find tasks on here which will be set as a homework task, other times it’ll just be a way we can share and display our learning to outsiders.
Please feel free to add comments and discuss what you are learning with your family and friends!
It’s going to be a great year full of fun and exciting events for our Grade 6’s last year of primary school!!!
