We watched our caterpillars grow and turn into butterflies. We then took them outside and let them go.
The purple group have been learning all about recycling.
“We recycled bottles and other stuff. We took it to the bins”
“We were making paper from old paper”
The weather forecast for next week is sunny and warm, finally!
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.
Monday 17th May to Friday 21 May is Walk to School week.
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.
Last week the Red group went on a walk in the school grounds to look for signs of spring. While they were there they took some time out to enjoy climbing and playing in the trees.
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.
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.
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.

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.
