Spring 2

This half term in Ladybird Nursery, our area of focus will be 'Spring' and 'The zoo'.

The children will take part in lots of hands on and creative activities around this topic.

In our adult led focus, we will be playing lots of games that will promote the children's communication and language development.

                                           We will be sharing lots of their favourite stories and singing lots of rhymes too!

As always in nursery our aim is to follow children's interest so learning, topics and activities can change all the time. 


*** Forest School ***


Forest school is on a Thursday. Children are to wear their forest school uniform and must bring a coat and a pair of wellies as the forest can be very muddy!

Method: Place the water, salt and oil into a pan and bring to the boil stir the salt around; it won't dissolve. Take from the heat and add the food colouring.

'Wow' moments at home; please upload onto Tapestry and I will add them to your child's Tapestry journal. 


Please remember that your child will need a named changing bag with a spare change of clothes and will need to have plenty of nappies, wipes and cremes if needed. They will also need a named water bottle. 

    Please write the children's names in their cardigans, jumpers, coats and on any other clothing. 

 Thank You
