Reception Buddies Liturgy

Today we hosted a liturgy to celebrate the friendship we have made with our buddies in reception. It was a lovely morning, as we invited parents into school to celebrate with us.

We decorated our focal point with drawings by reception children and presented each buddy to the focal point, as he or she is very special to God. Finally, we sang songs and performed dances with our buddies.

What a lovely morning we had as we celebrated the kindness, tolerance and respect we have displayed this half term as we have looked after our reception buddies.
