Wow what an amazing start to term! Every Turtle has settled into class amazingly and have all been very kind to one another. We have all loved playing in our new outside area and have  made our play house into our own 'holiday home' to play in. We have all enjoyed getting to know one another and have started to explore different things that we like and don't like.

We have also celebrated two birthdays in Turtles this week and have enjoyed our 'party snacks'! Well done Turtles what an amazing start to the year!
