Welcome to Zimbabwe class page!
Class Teacher: Miss Faulkner-Fox
LSA: Miss Nixon
In 4Zimbabwe we are always polite and listen when others are speaking. We are respectful to our peers, teachers and the environment. We are an engaged class that have positive and curious minds which help us to get the most out of our learning. We have been researching all about Zimbabwe and its beautiful landscapes, with places such as the glorious Victoria Falls and the many savannas in the area that are filled with beautiful wildlife. As the class teacher of Zimbabwe, I am very excited to spend my first year at PHA with this fantastic class and I hope they enjoy it with me!
