Please keep an eye out for our new ‘Story of the Week’  feature where we will be posting different stories read by members of staff. We hope children will enjoy listening to stories read by familiar voices from the nursery.

In the meantime please enjoy this rendition of ‘Lucy’s Lockdown’



Bookbug Week


Bookbug turns 10 this year and will be having some special online celebrations for Bookbug Week from 18-24 May. There are lots of ways to take part at home and enjoy the fun!

Bookbug Week will be online from Monday 18 May.  There will be a special drawalong with Debi Gliori from Monday to Friday where we can learn how to draw Bookbug and some very special friends in bitesize films. There is also a very special film with Debi Gliori as she explains how she created Bookbug!

Sprog Rock have created an exclusive new song for the Bookbug app to celebrate Bookbug’s Birthday! This will be launching on Wednesday 20th on Bookbug’s popular midweek rhyme slot!

There will be a special celebratory static Bookbug Session for families to try at home themselves on the website on Monday 18 and a new live with Paul Bookbug Session on Bookbug’s Facebook page for everyone to join in with on Friday 22 at 10am. Please tune in and sing happy birthday at the top of your voices.

The home activities hub will be packed with even more themed ideas to try at home, from making a party hat to colouring in Bookbug.

All through the week there will also be special competitions on the website and social media, and they will be asking for families’ memories of their child’s Bookbug Bags and Bookbug Sessions with their wee ones.
