Dear parents, carers and Robins,
We had a great time enjoying a listening walk around the school and our first visit to the forest area this week. Please see photos below of the children looking for minibeasts, exploring the paths through the trees, bark rubbing and building a bonfire!
We can't believe the children have nearly completed their first half term in Robins! We look forward to meeting with you at parents meetings next week. If you need a reminder of your time, do ask.
Please remember there will be no Nursery next Friday 22nd October as the school is closed in lieu of the Queen's Jubilee.
If you have any questions or concerns please do speak to a member of Nursery staff.
