Happy Friday Robins!

Thank you to those who have already sent wonderful pictures to us of what you have been very busy with at home. We are so impressed with you! Thank you also to everyone who has joined the 'live' sessions - you brighten up our morning! Have a look at what we would like you to do today below and then have a lovely weekend and take care.

Good morning Robins


Firstly today, I would like you to draw a picture of either your family or Stick Man’s family. Who is in your family – how many people is that? Who is in Stick Man’s family – how many stick people are there?


After this, using your sticks that you have collected, have a go at making a picture frame out of sticks. I’ve made a short video showing how I made mine to help you make yours. On the video I made a little mistake and only suggested to draw your family or friends but, like I said, drawing Stick Man’s family is fine too! I drew of my children but I accidentally forgot to draw myself and Mr Hanger - whoops! Once your frame is finished, I would love for you to email me a photo of it: 


You might also fancy having a dance today with Oti Mabuse: 


Finally, Jerry cat has sent you a message...take a look. 


Have fun Robins!

Monday 11th January - Happy Birthday to one of our special Robins!

Happy Friday Robins!

Please watch the uploaded story of Stick Man. I hope you enjoy it! Have you read it before? I love Stick Man’s family tree! I have also wanted to live in a treehouse! We are going to be focussing on the story of Stick Man by Julia Donaldson during the next few weeks.

Once you have listened to the story, please can you draw a picture of your favourite part of the story in your home learning book and tell someone about what you have drawn. They then can record what you say next to your picture.

Resources you might need next week are:

  • A collection of sticks! Can you count how many you can collect? (Don’t go mad!)
  • A selection of small things to count – ie Duplo, Lego, cars, pencils,   
  • Fancy dress for Fancy Dress Friday!

Have a super weekend Robins, take care.

Hi Robins!

Remember it is Fancy Dress Friday tomorrow!

See you there!

Morning Robins!

Please can make a pair of listening ears? They can be ‘normal’ human ears or very funny ears so long as use can listen really well with them! Once you have done this – sit quietly and listen to the sounds around you. Go outside and see if you can hear different sounds out there!

Here is a picture to help give you an idea. Once you have made a pair of ears, cut a strip of paper to stick your ears onto and wrap them around your head! You could also attach them to a hair band! Bring them to Friday’s Zoom session to show them off and then you can tell me what you have heard!

Happy listening!

Morning Robins!

We all hope you and your families are all happy and healthy and wish you all very Happy New Year.

It was lovely to see some of you earlier live on Zoom!

Today we would like you to watch Dr Ranj’s ‘Get Well Soon’ video on our webpage.

Once you have done this, please can you make a sign to remind everyone in your house to wash their hands! Where would be a sensible place to place it?

When you are next out for a walk, count how many signs you can see. Ask someone to tell you what they say.

Remember to sing our song as you wash your hands …maybe you could teach someone at home our song!

”wash, wash, wash your hands, wash them nice and clean, wash the front and then the back and all fingers inbetween” (sang to the tune of ‘Row, Row, Row Your Boat’)

Have a lovely day.

Inside Robins!

Welcome to the Robins Nursery - Virtual Tour

Nov 2020


Dear Parents,


Today we have watched a short video clip to talk about Poppy Day with the children in Robins and Hedgehogs. We only spoke very briefly to the children about the Wars, trying to take a very gentle age-appropriate look at this difficult subject. We explained that after the fighting was over poppies grew in the fields. We spoke about how we wear poppies today to remember those who fought in the Wars.

This is the link to the video we watched in case anyone wants to view it themselves or watch again at home.

Poppies and a few other small items are for sale for the next week if children wish to purchase something they need to bring their donation to school in a named envelope. 


Thank you.
