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.

Welcome back again!

It was fantastic to welcome the children back into nursery today. We have missed being with them over the last few weeks. They once again showed how resilient they are, returning as if they had never been away. This week we will also be welcoming some new children, who will be joining us across all of the groups. It is going to be a busy week.

We will upload some photos over the next few days to let you have a glimpse of just how happy we are to be back learning together again.

Unicorn milkshake

This unicorn milkshake looks super tasty.

Here is the recipe if you would like to have a go!

“We added to a blender 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream, a cup of milk and a handful of frozen raspberries (we really wanted strawberries but there was none!)

Once we blended the above we poured it into a glass and added squirty cream to the top. We then covered in ‘unicorn’ sprinkles and used the bottom of a cone for the horn”
