Tinkers News

This term, we had been planning to hold a Sunday morning "socially distanced sausage sizzle" for the children and families of our leavers. However, due to the government's latest announcements we are really sad that we will not be able to do this. As soon as it is possible, we will have a reunion so that we can say a proper goodbye and, on the plus side, find out how everyone is getting on at school! 

The Big Tinkers classroom is extremely busy on Thursdays this year and we were wondering if anyone is able to, or would like to, swap Thursday for Friday. If so, please could you drop us an email. 


Thank you to our parents who continue to follow the one way system in the main building or drop children at the gate for Big Tinkers, to support our social distancing rules.

We will of course continue to ensure regular hand washing and good hygiene practice as well as risk assessing for the safety of children and staff. You can read our Risk Assessment by clicking on the box below and if you have any comments or questions, please email us.  

Thank you again to everyone for your support and kindness. Stay safe and be kind.


Introducing our newest Little Tinkers! 

Ellie says they are very sweet and friendly and we are sure they will love meeting the children!

We had a wonderful afternoon on Friday:  a mini sports day for our leavers, 

watching the 3 new geese taking their first swim and then a delicious ice cream to end the day. Good luck to all of our Tinkers who are going to school in September. You are all Tinkers superstars! 

Each of the Big Tinkers grew a sunflower from seed and look at the size of this one!

Has anyone got a bigger one or maybe one with a flower?

Send us your photos to share with your friends.

Head over to our Home Learning page for some ideas of  fun things to do with your children. We will add more ideas regularly so keep checking!

Little Tinkers Nursery is split into 3 groups.

Tiny Tinkers is the baby room.

Little Tinkers is for the toddlers.

Children start Big Tinkers in the September before their 4th birthday as they start preparing for school.
