At Harry Roberts we inspire the children to develop their love of nature and this is a real strength of our school.
In recent weeks we have been learning about metamorphosis and watching caterpillars transform into butterflies. Our children have been learning the correct vocabulary such as larvae, metamorphosis and cocoon and can tell you all about caterpillars changing into butterflies. Our first butterfly emerged this week.
We have also been learning that we need to help save bees and we received some flower seeds from The Bee Society. We have planted these special seeds which will attract bees.
At Harry Roberts Nursery, we've been learning about democracy and having a voice and the importance of voting.
Your family has the responsibility to help you learn to
exercise your rights, and to ensure that your rights are protected.

The children were taken on a tour of the Victorian kitchen and learned about how the Victorians washed their clothes in a big tub, heated their irons on the fire and had hot bricks instead of hot water bottles (Understanding the World). We helped mend the Victorian shoes and we climbed lots of wooden stairs (Physical Development). We listened carefully (Communication and Language) and we took turns (Personal Social and Emotional Development). On the way to the museum we saw the baby coots on the canal, spotted dandelions and daisies, saw two police horses and watched the postman delivering letters.
