Welcome to Reception - Butterfly Class




As we go into our final week of the school year, I would like to thank you all for your support this year. As we know it has been a different and challenging year for the children but it has been a great pleasure getting to know each child and seeing their learning develop. Here is a little message to the children from the Butterfly Class team:
