Jack and the Beanstalk

We hope you have had a lovely Easter break and we look forward to welcoming the children back. A big warm welcome to the 5 new children and families starting with us this term, we hope you all enjoy your time with us.

When we return, our topic will be the story of ‘Jack and the beanstalk’. We will look at growing beans and start to plant seeds for the outside. We also have some live caterpillar’s arriving in the week along with stick insect eggs which we will keep as pets when they hatch.
