The weather has been pretty bleak this week but it has not stopped the children being outside, learning and having fun. We are sorry that some of their coats have been wet and very mucky but we do try wherever possible to swap coats and use nursery ones but we only have a few available. It is our policy to let the children play outside whenever possible so if anyone has old coats they are willing to donate or if your child has a spare coat that you are happy to let them get mucky in, please send it in.
Every year the PTA collect items for hampers to be raffled at the school Christmas Fayre with the proceeds going to buy “extras” for the children. This year the nursery have been asked to collect items to make up a Christmas day hamper.
The nursery receive huge support throughout the year from the PTA who have in the past bought us our waterproofs, vtech cameras for the children and every year pay for the Christmas presents for our party and the magician to come to our annual garden party but this can’t continue without your support.
Can I please ask if you are able to, could you donate a small item to be included in the hamper. Friday morning is that latest that donations can be handed it and it would be lovely to be able to hand over a hamper bursting with goodies.
Thank you to Moira Gilfillan for the fantastic new addition to our book corner, the children love him.

Some of the children’s comments
“mixed up berries are good”,
“strawberries and raspberries are yummy”,
“it tastes like strawberries and it has bits of strawberries in it”,
“it’s got all the colours of the rainbow in it” and “smoothies make you big and strong”.
Today we had lots of fun with Pudsey Bear. We joined the rest of the boys and girls in Cockenzie Primary to put our pennies on a giant Pudsey. We danced and ate spotty biscuits. It was a lovely end to a very busy week in nursery.
Last week we talked about the war and why people wear poppies, this week we went for a walk to see the poppies laid at the War Memorial.
All of our parents and carers have hopefully by now received the information regarding the funded early learning and childcare expansion of hours to 1140hours. A copy of this information is also available here.
If you have any questions regarding the information you were given then please do not hesitate to contact me or pass your queries via a member of the nursery team.

We have been learning about why people wear poppies and then we painted our own. Have a look at some of our work.
Thank you so much to the parents who came to our first Parent Forum. It was such a lovely opportunity to share the work that we are doing at Cockenzie Primary School Nursery and to get immediate feedback from our families.
The next meeting will be Tuesday 17th December, 5pm – 6pm, in the nursery. All are welcome to join us!
