Our First Week in Reception

What an exciting first week we have had in Reception! We have been exploring our classroom environments, both indoors and outdoors. We have had to learn all of our daily routines as well as how to find resources we need and how to tidy up the classroom. We have formed new friendships and all of the teachers have got to know us really well already! What a busy time we have had. Enjoy looking through the photos below to see what we have been doing during our time in Reception at Valley Road.
