Today we released our butterflies into the nursery garden. The children were given the opportunity to hold a butterfly if they wanted to. All of the children were respectful rhinos, staying very calm and gently holding the butterflies on their hands so they didn’t scare the butterflies. Afterwards we watched excitedly as the butterflies flew away.
Our transition activities are in full swing now with visits to the Primary One area to see where we will put our packed lunch boxes and to meet the lovely office ladies. We also stopped by Miss Murray’s room for a chat.
Here we are at our very first Assembly!
Not long until our official transition week starts on Monday 6th June, please see details below so that you can talk to your chid about what has been happening that day….
Just a reminder that school and nursery are closed on Monday 23rd May as it’s an in-service day for staff.
We are kicking off our transition activities to help all our children who will be starting Primary One after the holidays.
Over the next couple of weeks all our pre schoolers will be visiting the school office, the primary one toilets and playground.
Our transition bear will be tagging along on all our visits and coming to P1 too, when we move after the holiday (all dressed in his new school uniform).
There will be lots of transition activities coming up over the coming weeks!
The nursery have been busy planting all the seeds we received from your generous donations.
We took some pumpkin seeds to the gardeners around at ‘Cockenzie in Bloom’ and they stored them in the green house for us until they were ready to plant in our vegetable patch. Mrs Purves took two helpers to collect them and they had grown lots already!
We had some great helpers weeding our vegetable patch and getting it all ready to plant the seeds.
We will continue our planting over the next six weeks and the children will be watering them daily… helping us learn about where food comes from and what it needs to grow.
We can’t wait to make tasty snacks with our vegetables, well done you are all NURTURING NORA’S!
We currently have caterpillars in nursery and we are learning all about their life cycle. They are getting bigger everyday… we can’t wait to see them transform into butterflies!
Today we explored some of the special jobs bees do. We discussed what pollination is. Then, we pretended to be bees and spread pollen from one flower to another. We do hope this will help them grow and produce more flowers.
