Welcome to the class page of Carbon Class!

‘Carbon is often referred to as the building block of life..’
‘Carbon plays a huge role in the world we live in’

In Carbon class there are 28 magnificent children. Our class teacher is Mrs Skinner and we are also helped by the wonderful Mrs Shanahan, and Mrs Carlton-Paterson. Together we make a great team- working hard to achieve our best.
