Please feel free to bring in your favourite books from home for us to read. We are very busy making lots of arts and craft things for Mother’s Day and Easter, but best of all the babies will be baking for Sport Relief to raise money for less fortunate than ourselves, so please sponsor us.


We would like to welcome Orlaith, Stanley, Annabelle and Lyla into our room and hope they enjoy their time in the toddler room. This month our story of the month is: Goldilocks and the Three Bears which ties in with World Book day on the 3rd March. We will be doing lots of activities based around this book. Our shape of the month is the triangle and we shall be looking for lots of triangles in the environment. March is a very busy month with St David’s Day, World Maths Day, World Book Day, Mother’s day, St Patrick’s Day, Sport Relief and finishing off with Easter. Lots of activities and fun this month. Please could you supply a change of clothes as we still go outside every day and it is very muddy. If you are able to supply family photos, this would be a big help as we are going to make books for our cosy area.
