Mabel’s Magical Garden

Our topic for this term is ‘Mabel’s magical garden’.

We will be exploring growing and planting as well as mini beasts and animal changes.

You can help your child at home through:

Read the stories about growing.

Talk about the mini beasts and the changes they go through, e.g caterpillars and butterflies.

Growing sunflowers seeing which one becomes the tallest. If you do not have a garden perhaps you can grow some cress on the window sill. We would love to see anything you make at home with your child, so do bring it in!

Stay and Play 18th May

We will be having a stay and play session on the 18th May for you to come an join in some activities with your child. Details and times to follow.


At the nursery the children start thinking about the world around them. We think about the sounds around us and then about the sounds letters make. This term our phonic letters are eurbhf .


Please could make sure that your children’s shoes are suitable for them to change themselves and for climbing in.

No shoes with laces please
