Editor of Nursery Education PLUS, Tracey, introduces our ‘Once upon a time’ themed activities and offers more ideas for exploring the topic with your children:

‘Two friends from very different backgrounds meet up and eventually decide that there really is no place like home! This tale of two mice will give the children a chance to talk about their favourite places and the qualities of friendship. Why not create a shoebox world for an imaginary mouse, with miniature furniture, objects and clothing? Or develop a new storyline where these mice both venture off to discover a new country overseas?’
