Classroom Economy!

September 14, 2021

This year we have our very own economy in our classroom!! 

Every boy has a job within the classroom and gets paid a salary at the end of the month. There is chance to earn extra 'Class Cash' bonuses everyday for completing work and working hard, keeping our desks neat and tidy, good behaviour etc. But, there is also a chance of being fined by one of our Officiers ... 

We are looking forward to our first Class Auction at the end of September as it will be the first chance we get to spend our Class Cash but not before we pay our Desk Rent!!

James Popes Bridge

February 3, 2021

James' bridge here is holding up a lot of coins  - a platform bridge, I like his raised edges, this causes it to be stronger and enables it to hold more weight. Well Done James.
