On Friday 16 December we’re inviting all pupils to take part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.
The whole school will be taking part, with everyone getting the chance to show the world their silly side by wearing their favourite festive knits for the day.
We’re asking pupils to make a £1 donation, or whatever they can give, to help save children’s lives around the world.
The money they raise will help Save the Children give the world’s forgotten children a brighter future. It could help bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support.
And you won’t need to splash out on snazzy new sweaters to join in the fun – simply decorate an old woolly to create your own crafty masterpiece!
We’d really appreciate your help to make Christmas Jumper Day a huge success.
With your support we’re looking forward to a woolly great day!
because the children of Levenhall Nursery are having lots of fun; learning, exploring and enjoying themselves outdoors. This is a video for everyone to catch a glimpse of what it was like to be out and about in the fresh air. It’s a long video so you can dip in and out to see all the activities and hear what it’s like.
Our nursery garden was white with frost this morning. Many of the children wondered how ice was made…..
Jackson “Jack frost makes ice”
Caleb “snow makes is”
Holden “water makes ice”
We set up an experiment to see if our cups of water would turn into ice. We were disappointed when after 10 minutes it was still water. We had to do some research using books and the internet. We found out water takes 4-6 hours to turn into ice. We will check our cups of water tomorrow at nursery.
Yesterday we launched our ‘Play on Pedals’ programme with some of the morning children. W e were learning about bike safety and how important it was to always wear a correctly fitted helmet. We were also learning about the importance of being able to stop (by using the brake) when needed. We had fun riding the balance bikes and are looking forward to our next session.
Play on Pedals Training provides the learning, skills and resources to promote cycling to early years children in a fun and interactive way. Initially sponsored by the Peoples’ Postcode Lottery, the project was created in partnership between Play Scotland, Glasgow Bike Station, CTC – the national cycling charity and Cycling Scotland.
Your child will learn about the parts of a bicycle, how to fit a helmet correctly and the basics of looking after their bikes. Through a series of fun and imaginative activities, they will be helped to develop their balance and control skills, often using a pedal-less balance bike.
When ready your child will get the opportunity to move onto a pedal bike. All sessions and games are designed to support confidence, interactive learning and development physical skills.
Our Nature Nurture sessions have begun and the children have been having fun down in the woods. As we participate in a variety of activities the children are learning all about their world and developing confidence, independence and self esteem. They are enthusiastic about sharing their experiences with friends and a new display area has been set up with a special floorbook and some of the things we have found. Be sure to have a look at what we are doing over the coming weeks.
Levenhall Nursery will be located at Pinkie St Peter's Primary from Monday 18th May 2015
