TLTP 025 – Stay Classy
Break time’s over, kids. It’s time to get back to class and get yourself some learning from The Last Tuesday Project!
This month we are looking at education, with Alex asking a question about class sizes? Hayley and Guest Tuesday Jane diligently research the topic in preparation for the test at the end of the lesson.
