Nursery News…

We are already whizzing through the first term all the nursery children are settling well and enjoying their new sessions with lots of exciting learning and interests.



Following  a visit during the Festival from some African Drummers from Ghana the children have been exploring making music with lots of  different drums and dancing to the beat.

Mrs Hood and the children have also been very busy making bread following a shopping trip where the children discovered , bought and tasted lots of different types of bread .

Hannah was trying the bread rolls from Asda. She thought the ciabatta roll felt “bouncy” and the tiger roll “hard”. She did not like the croissant. She liked the garlic bread best.

Faith thought the croissant looked like a shell and smelled of butter. Her favourite bread was pumpkin. Yum!!!

This week the children have been making their own bread rolls exploring the different tastes and textures of the seeds and grains. Hope you have had a chance to taste them or use the recipe the children have brought home.

We also have had some “Special Visitors” arriving in our house corner!!! Watch this space…………

We are hoping to Blog regularly please check our Nursery Information Boards for any updates.

Potato Challenge

These are the potatoes the classes grew in their pots or grow bags. We had hoped they would be harvested in June but due to the cold wet weather we had to wait until after the holidays. Each class from Nursery to the Hub participated in the Potato Challenge and the winning class was the Blue Group in the Nursery. Their seed potatoes produced a weight of 1.60kg. Well Done! All the potatoes will now go to the school kitchen to be cooked and used as part of the lunch menu.

Gillian is very pleased to receive the potatoes from the boys.

Class Blogs

Our Class Blogs are now up and running (see the links on the left hand side). Please keep checking back to find out what your child’s class has been learning. You can also leave a comment if you wish to. We aim to update our blogs regularly and pupils will be adding to them too.

The Kyle Wood Award

Recently the staff team felt the need for a trophy that celebrated pupils who work hard in all areas of school life and follow in the footsteps of Kyle, a former pupil at Sanderson’s Wynd. All staff were in agreement that the person who should receive this trophy in session 2014-15 is a pupil who has made the most of every opportunity that presented itself to her. Tammi McLean has given her own time to help others and has been a wonderful role model for her peers. Kyle’s motto, ‘You can do it, just like me, just like I did’ is inscribed on the trophy. His family came today to the P7 leavers assembly to present the trophy to Tammi in front of her family. We are all very proud of Tammi’s achievements.
