Our snack cupboard is full!

Published by under 2013/14

At Nursery we are continuing with our topic “farm to fork”. We are learning how money is used to buy our snack so we made a shopping list of what we needed. Mrs Cameron ordered it for us on the computer from Asda and paid for it with the school card. It was delivered yesterday and we then had to check that it was all there. After putting it away,our snack cupboard is full!

The highland cows at Athelstaneford.

Published by under 2013/14

At Nursery we have been learning where food comes from and how it grows. This morning we went for a walk to see the highland cows that arrived during the summer holidays. On the way back to Nursery we went in the field where we found some barley that hadn’t been cut by the combine harvester and some bramble bushes. Some of us liked them them some of us didn’t! Then we finished our walk off with a play in the park. A great morning!

We’ve already been busy in class, creating paintings to fill our displays, getting to know each other, welcoming new friends and working with the Primary 2/3s on our hopes and dreams for this year.  We’ve had help from our P7 buddies in the playground and worked with Mrs Broadley in Music.  How did we fit it all into 2 mornings?

Nursery’s Leavers Ceremony

Published by under 2013/14

Today it was the 2014 Leavers Ceremony! It was a lovely celebration with songs they have been learning throughout the year for the children moving up to P1 and the children who are moving on to another school. Miss McKinnon presented the children with their certificates after going through the arch. Not a dry eye in the school playground!
