Welcome

This is our working classroom blog.

Our main publishing blog is at http://room10rbs.edublogs.org/ and our homework blog is at http://room10rbshomework.blogspot.com/.

For our everyday working blog we will use this one as well as maths and reading/language specific blogs. Initially there will be only a few activities to do but hopefully this will build up to a series of activities to do and blog about.

Keep an eye on here for daily information.
