Class 3 - Miss Casale
Welcome to Year 3!
I'm Miss Casale and I'm the Class 3 teacher.
In class 3 we love learning. Now that we are juniors, we are learning to become more independent and are becoming responsible for ourselves.
We respect and follow the 'Lowdham Learners' motto and we all 'Shine like Stars'.
