Transition Day in Primary 1!

This morning the nursery boys and girls visited their new Primary 1 classroom. The children looked comfortable and enjoyed being Little Owls for the very first time. They were good listeners and gave their best effort with their black pen drawings of themselves. The children enjoyed exploring the areas too and at the end of the visit they sang some of their favourite songs. Everyone agreed that Primary 1 is going to be fun! Fantastic effort boys and girls!

Buddy Bear Returns!

This morning Buddy Bear returned to see the Nursery, Primary 1 and Primary 2. He was delighted to hear about all the acts of kindness that the children have been doing since his first visit and he enjoyed reading the boys’ and girls’ reports in the Buddy Bear journals. Buddy Bear’s team talked to the children about having daily “Thankful Moments” and how these can help us feel happy and well. Each class was presented with a cape and mask which the children can share during circle times. Many thanks to Buddy Bear and his team for all the wise advice about being kind and for the super resources that each class received.

Wonderful Wednesday!

Yesterday the morning nursery and Primary 1 worked together investigating symmetry. The children looked at symmetry in nature and created their own symmetrical patterns using a variety of materials. Well done boys and girls. Great effort!

“The Attic”

Yesterday morning the nursery children and Primary 1 enjoyed watching a performance by the “Starcatcher” theatre group. “The Attic” was about a little girl and her grandmother rummaging through suitcases and boxes where memories were stored. It was set to a beautiful live piano score and ended with an invitation for the children to join in a tea party under the stars!

Buddy Bear Visits Aberlady!

This morning the nursery, Primary 1 and Primary 2 enjoyed meeting Buddy Bear and his friends. The children found out about Buddy Bear’s superhero mission to teach everyone about being a good friend. The children took part in three workshops exploring acts of kindness, asking for help and well being. At the end everyone joined in with Buddy Bear’s Boogie! Many thanks to Buddy Bear and his team for giving us lots of wise advice about friendship.

Wonderful Wednesday: Gung Hay Fat Choy!

This morning the Nursery and Primary 1 enjoyed another Wonderful Wednesday. The theme this time was the Chinese New Year. The children found out about some of the beliefs of the Chinese people and how they celebrate this important festival. The boys and girls made lovely Chinese lanterns and beautiful wall hangings. They also created their own Chinese music, learned a Chinese New Year song and had a go at some dragon dance moves accompanied by percussion instruments. Well done everyone!
