Reception ~ Butterfly Class Summer Term

Hello Butterflies! We hope that you are all staying safe and well x


It's our last week in Reception together! I have an exciting week full of adventure stories for you, to get you ready for your very own adventure in September of moving up to Year 1. Have a go at the different activities and talk time ideas to get you thinking about your adventures ahead.
