A WARM WELCOME TO ROBIN CLASS!
We are very excited about welcoming our new children this term and to welcoming back our 'old' Robins! We look forward to helping the children settle quickly into Robin Class and to working with all our families this year. If you have any questions or concerns please do always speak to a member of the Nursery Team.

What are we learning about in Robin Class?
Our topic for this half term is 'My World'. We will be learning about our new learning environment, making new friends and talking about our home and family. After half term we will be learning about Celebrations. Teaching and learning will be linked to all seven areas of the curriculum; focusing on particular rhymes and stories which will be shared weekly (see links below).
Through our topics we will also be using every opportunity to develop spiritual, moral, social, and cultural values- encouraging children to: explore beliefs and experiences; show respect for faiths, feelings and values; learn about themselves, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity as well as reflect.
