Barbados have had a wonderful year, we have welcomed Tegan into our class and have built happy friendships. We have explored forests for clues, dressed as Victorians and experienced learning in a Victorian classroom, we have appreciated how the Battle of Britain was a turning point for victory during World War Two, made our own flour at Crabble Corn Mill and much much more. I would like to express how much I have enjoyed teaching Barbados and would like to wish them every success in year seven.
