YR Fantasy Day

This week we had a Fantasy World Day in the reception classes, when all the children and teachers came dressed as their favourite characters.

Throughout the day, the children helped to solve problems to rescue Chilly the Penguin, who was stuck in the tree! Poor Chilly.

Some problems were really hard, and we had to work together to find the answer.But we got him down in the end. Well done everyone!
