Can we please ask you to put suntan lotion on your child before nursery.

If you have not already done so can we ask you to put a named bottle of suntan lotion in your child’s bag so that the team can help them reapply lotion at lunchtime.

We will try to ensure all bottles are put back into each child’s bag at the end of the day so that you have lotion to use at home too.

Calling all parents and carers!

WTSW2020

Monday 17th May to Friday 21 May is Walk to School week.

WTSW superpowers

We need your support! The challenge is for every pupil in the nursery and school to travel to school sustainably (walk,scoot, cycle or Park and Stride) every day for one week.

We will be recording our results every day in nursery using our numeracy and data handling skills. We will also be discussing the health and wellbeing benefits of using these methods to get to school.

If you can please walk with your child or let them cycle or scoot to nursery. We understand that some people will have to drive in but if you do please consider parking further away and walking the last wee bit to allow your child to join in.

Thank you.

Gather time at nursery.

Each morning the children gather in their groups to spend some time with their key worker. Here is a glimpse of some of the learning taking place in those groups.

Wow

During the Easter holidays this nursery child donated 12 inches of her hair and raised £285 for the Little Princess Trust. What a fantastic achievement. Well done and your new haircut is beautiful.

Wellbeing

In our gather groups this week the nursery team have begun to introduce the children to the icons for each of the GIRFEC wellbeing indicators. The icons which were designed by the Care Inspectorate will be used to help the children understand what they need to thrive and grow. The nursery team will be encouraging the children to use the language of the wellbeing indicators during everyday conversations.

World Book Day

As we were unable to dress up in nursery today some of our children sent us photos of their outfits.

This last picture made both Mrs Pollard and Mrs O’Connor smile as the Faraway Tree was one of their favourite childhood books. Mrs O’Connor’s daughter kindly let the nursery borrow one of her books and Mrs Pollard read some of the story to the children. Afterwards some of the children drew pictures of the characters.
