Year 6 and Reception Buddies – Easter Egg Hunt!

Year 6 and Reception Buddies – Easter Egg Hunt!

Although things are a little different this year, Y6 still wanted to share in the traditional Easter egg hunt with their buddies in Reception class. So, each member of Y6 carefully decorated an egg with their buddy’s name on it. They then hid these in the Reception garden before disappearing to watch from afar as their buddy searched high and low!

After cheering their Reception class buddy on, Y6 returned to their own classroom to enjoy a chocolate egg for their hard work!
