There was a nest with 5 baby Robins nestled in the beehive on the wall. The parents were in and out frequently and we tried to enjoy watching them from a distance and so as not to disturb the parents feeding. Overnight they flew the nest, we are hoping they lay more eggs.

Open Day

Nearly 180 people visited us on Open Day on Saturday 4th March and it was a fantastic session!
Parents were amazed to see how much there is for children to do during the day, many hadn’t seen all the activities available during the day before. It was good for the parents to see how confident and independent the children are now.

Bug Hotel

Zena Miles has been back to see us and built a superb Bug Hotel with the children outside in the Woodland Walk.

Making Bread Rolls

The Sunshine Room children have made bread rolls this term, there were lots of opportunities in all areas of learning and the children thoroughly enjoyed it as well!

Alban Buns

The Hot Cross Bun may have first been made in St Albans. Brother Thomas Rocliffe, a 14th Century monk at St Albans Abbey, developed an original recipe and distributed the bun to the local poor on Good Friday, starting in 1361. We thought we would have a go at making the Alban Bun!  Alban Bun recipe Read more about the  Alban Bun
