This term in the Nursery we will be thinking about Transport and all the magical places it can take us.  We will also be going on a walk in our community to investigate the sorts of transport we can find around us.  In the later half of the term we will be preparing for our sports day and will be celebrating the end of the year with a trip to Leysdown Beach.  We can’t wait!
