This month we are learning about spring and growing. We will be planting different types of seeds and caring for them as they grow. We will be observing signs of spring in our environment and talking about the changes in weather and outdoors which come with springtime and new growth.

We will be focusing on the colours green and yellow and diamond shapes.


We will read, act, and have puppet shows of:

· Jack and the Beanstalk

· Goldilocks and the 3 bears

· 3 Billy Goat’s Gruff

· The 3 Little Pigs

· The Gingerbread Man


Live here Love here: Volunteers Needed!


On Tuesday 17th April we will be taking part in the ‘Live here love here’ Big Spring Clean up. We will be supported by our community partners, The Walkway Centre.

Clean up starts at 11am and we really need volunteers to come along and ‘muck in’. It really does get our outdoor area ready for the better weather and outdoor learning for the children. Please see Mrs Symington if you can help. Many thanks.
