Spread the Happiness

 

In Reception we have been trying to ‘spread the happiness’ by engaging in the 100 things to do before you are 6. We asked our parents/carers to take a photograph of their child engaging in one of the activities and add it to their online learning journal. It has been lovely to see what the children have been learning outside of school.
