Hello and welcome to Seahorses Class!

We are a fun and vibrant class of 10 superstar children and 5 adults. We love to be as active as we can with our learning and a carousel of activities works well for us. We get together as a whole class for the start of each lesson as well as really important times of the day such as registration, snack, lunch and Rainbow time when we can celebrate and enjoy the achievements of ourselves and our friends.
