Dear parents, carers and Robins,
We had a lovely last week of the Summer term, enjoying sports day and a pirate treasure hunt! We are very sad to say goodbye to our Robins who will be going into Reception. You have been fantastic and we will really miss you. Thank you so much for all the kind gifts, cards and messages we have received - we really appreciate them. We wish you all a very happy Summer holiday and all the very best for September and look forward to seeing those of you going up to Blackbirds when we return!
We also look forward to welcoming back our old Robins and meeting our new Robins and their families in September.
Have a wonderful and safe Summer,
The Nursery Team x

Letters and Sounds
