Welcome to our P6K class Blog!

Learning across the curriculum is already well underway. We are enjoying getting to know each other in our new classes and planning our learning together.
We will use this Blog to update you on our learning and of our journey through the curriculum.
We are very lucky to have Miss Garden, a MA student from Edinburgh University working with us until February. She already feels like one of the class!
