At Harry Roberts we like to encourage the children to write for a purpose. These children are writing their names to wait for their turn for the bikes.
We went to the memorial in Shandy Park to mark Remembrance Day and 100 years since the end of the First World War. We learned about Alfred George Drake who lived nearby a long time ago.
He was very brave in the war and helped his friend. Alfred got hurt in the fighting. He was given a Victoria Cross medal. We put some poppies on the memorial and we sung a song as we remembered Alfred.

To support our children's physical development and wellbeing we have weekly football sessions. The children enjoy learning new skills and have lots of fun!

Wow! Look how many parents and children went bulb planting this week. We are so looking forward to watching our bulbs flower in the spring. We will be able to feel very proud and say , "We did that."
Some of us went to Shandy Park to help plant bulbs. Watch out for our bulbs growing into flowers in the spring. Shandy Park is our local park and want to help it look special.
At the end of the workshop, we were asked to say whether we enjoyed it or not. We will be doing more activities there on Tuesday afternoons and are asking our mummies, daddies and families to join us.
Let us know if you can help!
Today we held a very successful Bike Day when children brought their bikes and scooters to nursery. This event is part of our Travel Plan action which encourages sustainable travel. Many children took part and were very kind about sharing their bikes and scooters with their friends. They labelled their bikes (Literacy), developed their cycling skills (Physical Development), celebrated a special event with friends (Understanding the World) and shared with each other (Personal, Social and Emotional Development). We also made a collection for Unicef as part of our work on Rights Respecting Schools.

We went on a trip to Mile End Adventure Park. We had lots of fun. We spotted flowers, played in the water and did lots of climbing. We had a picnic and even had ice cream!
