 We love celebrating things we have achieved in School and we love to hear about achievements outside of school. Therefore, every half term the children will be given a cloud for parents to record something achieved outside of school. This is then shared and celebrated with everyone in class. We display these on our You are a Rainbow of possibilities board.
