Happy New Year! We are very much looking forward to Term 3 and getting to know all our new Robins this term!

We are settling into the new year and have new friends to get to know. We have been thinking about how to be kind to each other and how to play together and share toys.

We have made playdough this week!

Merry Christmas everyone! Have a supersonic holiday and remember to have a good rest! With lots of love from Robins!

Thank you so much for all your Christmas wishes, beautiful cards and generous gifts. Have a lovely, peaceful Christmas and Happy New Year 2023!

With love from the Robins Team x

The Sleepy Shepherd Nativity.

Challenge!! How many colours can your family eat?

Please read! We cannot emphasise how important monitoring screen time for all ages of children is...

We have loved playing in the snow, rescuing animals from ice and going on a slippery adventure to the church to visit the Christmas Tree Festival. Try to go - it is beautiful!

Secret out...The Gingerbread Man and friends are about!! Ask your child what happened when they visited!

We had the MOST exciting lunchtime - ask us who we saw waving at us and where!

We made Jingle sticks today at forest school. Ask us what we used to make them. We also ate our snack there. We jingled all the way back to Nursery!

We performed Jingle Bells to the Hedgehogs using our jingle sticks.

We have made some Gingerbread people. We helped Mrs Shaw measure out all the ingredients. Ask us what we needed to make such delicious treats.

As we are finishing our story 'Whatever Next' this week we thought it would be fun to have a picnic on the moon like Baby Bear did! We thought of what we would need and wrote shopping lists. Mrs Priddle and Mrs Shaw make the best star shaped toast!

Space Art!

We've all planted bulbs this week. We had a think about what bulbs need to make them grow. Have a look in our playground to see the names we thought for our plants and count how many plant pots we filled!

Thinking about special people and how they help us whilst making our poppies...

We went on an adventure to the school hall and played different games using our physical and counting skills!

We learnt about how people celebrate Diwali and made some diva lamps.


We've been into space this week with a special show from Spaceship Earth!

Creating our own Autumn trees and pretending to walk through the trees at Forest School

Communication and Language links and support...

We have had a wonderful first term together in Robins...

Today we went on an Autumn walk to the allotments. Thank you to Gerald for talking to us about how he grew the largest, most wonderful pumpkin ever! Ask us which other fruits and vegetables we saw.

After lunch we listen to music which makes us feel calm. Ask us what we think about when we are calm.


We are really looking forward to getting to know our new Robins this term and playing and learning together. Here are some photos of our first few days together...

Welcome to our wonderful school!
