Our Learning Environment Term 2 

Christmas has arrived in Rainbows with the addition of our post office and we have been learning what it's like to be a postal worker! Take a look at our amazing learning. 

Term 2 - People who help us. We have found out what it's like to be fire fighter, a doctor and a police officer. We have built a fire engine, put out our own fires, made our friends better in our hospital. We've practised our counting skills and number recognition by playing the emergency vehicle parking game and made emergency vehicles using tools and vegetables.
