Topic this month
This month we will be introducing our Easter/Growth theme. We will be finding out about some of the traditions associated with this time of year. To develop our ’Growth’ theme, we will be planting new bulbs, seeds & plants whilst caring for existing plants both indoors & outdoors. The colour this month in N1 is yellow, and the shape is Oval.
