English Experience HUB online.

Hey everybody and Happy Friday!

First of all, I hope you are all doing well. I know that this year has been a little different to how we might have expected and we have all had to adapt the way we are learning and teaching but the good news is that we can still be connected via our online platforms.

The HUB has been running online for these first few months for 3rd to 8th grade students on the Google Classroom platform. There has been some amazing work there so congratulations to all the students who have been participating. 

We will be sharing some of the work that has been done in the HUB online soon as well as some outstanding work from the English department so….watch this space!
