What have we been up to in Reception this week?

 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.
