Welcome to Robin Room
Robin Room is our Nursery's 30 hour provision for three and four year olds. The children attend for 6 hours a day and are taught by Emma, Hazel and Tracey. Take a look at our page to see what we get up to.
World Book Day 2021
For World Book Day the children came dressed up as storybook characters! The story that we focussed on for the day was 'The Selfish Crocodile' by Faustin Charles.
Guess How Much I Love You in the Winter
This week the children have been learning all about winter. We have spent lots of time in the garden exploring the different effects that winter has in nature, and we were even lucky enough to have enough snow and ice to go sledging! We explored ice in the classroom, using descriptive language and looking at how it changes from ice to water.
Pirates Love Underpants!
This week we have been doing lots of activities based around the books, Pirates Love Underpants by Claire Freedman. We made telescopes and used them to explore the garden. We practised singing the pirate song, made treasure maps and eye-patches and buried treasure in the sand pit to find.
Christmas in Robin Room
This year the children were busy making decorations and decorating the class Christmas tree. They also made Father Christmas masks and prepared for a visit from the man himself! We finished off the year with a Christmas party with lots of games, dancing and a festive feast.
Goodbye Robin Room
The end of the year is always a sad time with lots of goodbyes. But it's also a good time to celebrate as the children start their journeys at new schools. We are sure that they'll all do us proud. Good luck!
The children helped to prepare the vegetables for a stir fry which we cooked in the fire circle. It was a good opportunity to learn about healthy eating and the safe use of tools.
We're going on a bug hunt...we're going to catch some wriggly ones...we're not scared!!
Sadly we weren't able to complete our 'Abundance' art project with the Sainsbury's Centre, but we were still kept busy with some projects from Rach and Lawrence, the artists who were leading the project. The children explored how to combine recycled and natural materials, making them stick together without the use of tape or glue.
The children admired themselves in the mirror and were inspired to create some self-portraits. They were encouraged to look carefully at their features, counting them and considering colour and shape before drawing.
FEE FI FO FUM
Somebody has been up to no good at our Nursery...and they've left some huge footprints! We followed the footprints to see where they led and investigated to see if the footprints belonged to any of the grown-ups: but they were all too small! Who could have left the tracks? There's only one way to find out...we have to set a trap!
