Topic- Where does it come from?

We will be exploring life cycles and will look closely at the life cycle of a butterfly. In our outside area, we will be planting seeds and bulbs and watching them grow. We will also start creating our herb garden exploring the smells and uses of each one. Outside we will observe changes in the environment as Winter turns to Spring. 

In Art, we will be looking at the work of Kandinsky and will create a display of our work. 


To help your child become independent, please encourage them to put their own coat on, wash their hands and begin to tidy away their toys.

Reading books:

In class we are currently reading stories about life cycles, seeds and plants and the weather and seasons. We will share stories and talking pictures daily. We will also begin reading sessions teaching children for example how to turn pages and talk about what is happening. 

Spare clothes:

Each child in Nursery has their own tray. They are learning to keep their belongings in it. Please make sure you send in a spare set of clothes and we will put them in their tray.


Please speak to one of our nursery staff if you have any questions.
