Exciting caterpillar news!

The children were all very excited this morning to come and have a look at our caterpillars! They have now all formed a chrysalis. We have moved them into their nets ready for their big transformation! All our groups have been talking about the life cycle of the butterfly and we are all very excited to be observing this process!

Calling all parents and carers!


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.


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.
