HELP US RAISE FUNDS FOR AN AMAZIING WATER INVESTIGATION  STATION 

My time at Robert Owen has been over 10 years of the most rewarding work I have ever done. First as deputy and then Head teacher I have seen thousands of children flourish at this wonderful nursery school. The ethos of the school enables children’s voices to be heard and they access their teaching and learning in such a personalised way. This is only achieved through the care and understanding of the committed staff team who know how children learn best. With so many new residential properties being built in the area, many children need so much more access to outdoor play, which our lovely nursery garden provides.

Water play is a key feature of children’s learning. Many of our families will remember days when their child goes home with a bag or wet clothes because they have been playing and learning!! Water play affords mathematical development, scientific understanding, supports communication and language and builds relationships in turn taking and sharing.

The children and staff have always wanted a large water feature in the nursery garden and I hope to raise some money towards this through running the Big Half Marathon (from Tower Bridge and ending in Greenwich) on Sunday 10th March.

The Friends of Robert Owen are a group of committed parents who are raising extra funds for the school to provide children with that little bit more and I would like to support their hard efforts to raise some extra funds for the school.

I am now stepping away from my Headship and would love your support for my ambition to create a permanent water station in the garden.
