Nursery shall continue the story of The Bad Tempered Lady Bird. We will be looking at the life cycle of a ladybird and using our wildlife area to see if we can find any ladybirds or mini beasts.

We will be looking at numbers, in particular the clock and relating this to our routines, e.g. 9 o clock register, 1o o clock snack time.
Why not use the clock at home as another way to explore and sequence numbers.
