The afternoon nursery class had a lovely morning playing in our garden and in the Wood of Wonder. We enjoyed making mud pies in our mud kitchen and playing with the super instruments in the Wood of Wonder.
Today Katie (an archaeologist who we met when we went to the dig ) came in to our class to tell us more about the Anglo Saxons and about what has been found down at the dig in the Glebe Field. We had great fun dressing up as Anglo Saxons and thinking about what the lives of village people long ago would have been like.
Then we looked at some pictures of Illuminated Texts from Anglo Saxon times – texts that would have been written and illuminated by the monks on Lindisfarne. We had a go at doing some illuminated texts of our own! Have a look at the results.
We have had a call, campers should arrive by 12.30pm in Aberlady. Washing machines at the ready!
Been warm but wet today. Had rain most of the afternoon although it’s a dry evening now and it’s not stopped us doing any of the usual activities. Here’s a few more pictures for you to look at. Food has been good and children are making great new friendships in preparation for High School. Mrs Currie came to visit today and brought Miss Dalgety with her. We had to say goodbye to Miss Wood who has headed back home but Miss Dalgety is looking forward to taking her place and joining in with the fun.
Think the children are all looking forward to tomorrow night’s disco to try out their dance moves!
Had a great day today with lots more activities : hillwalking, crate climbing, tree climb, burn scramble and canoeing. Weather was good this morning but very wet this afternoon. Think it’s to stay that way so look out for lots of smelly, wet clothes coming home!!!!!
