Talking Boxes

 If your child is new to nursery it would be lovely for them to make their talking box at home this weekend and bring it in on the correct day next week.

The box can be any type with a lid. Just decorate together at home and your child can bring in something special hidden in their box each week on their specific day to talk about and share with their friends. A very simple show and tell session.

If your child has been with us for the last term and hasn’t yet made a box then please do, as it’s a great way for them to share something special from home. It’s never too late to make that box!


Please bring your child’s box each week on the specified day.
