Sunflower art work

A HUGE THANK YOU to one of our mummies and local artist, Rachel (Bonzo Art – who has created this wonderful piece of artwork inspired by Van Gogh’s sunflowers. She helped the children to create each of the sunflowers a few months ago and has put it up today in our middle room. I’m sure you will agree it looks fantastic!!!?! These will be used as an end of term gift for pre-schoolers… watch this space!!!

The Nativity – Room 2

Room 2 had a go at acting out the Nativity story yesterday. Here are some photos:


Mary, Joseph and the donkey set out on their long journey.


The Angel Gabriel appeared to the shepherd.


The Baby Jesus was born in a stable and placed in a manger.

The End.


Heidi’s mum visited the class last week and painted pebbles with some of the children to create a Nativity scene. Here is the finished result:

Christmas Nativity art

Heidi’s mum very kindly popped in this morning to deliver an art session with the children. She had pre-prepared some pebbles with the outline of characters from the Nativity, then invited the children to come and have a go at painting them. Heidi’s mum let them practise on blocks first and told them about fat strokes and thin strokes, then they were let loose on the pebbles themselves. We think they’ve done a great job, and we’ll keep them for future story telling of the Nativity.

Huge thanks to Heidi’s Mum. What do you think?

A big thank you from East Lothian Foodbank

Peter from East Lothian Foodbank came to collect the food we collected.

He says “Thanks for inviting me to the nursery today your children have collected a massive 121.7 kilos of food and this equates to a grand total of 203 meals for people who find themselves in in food crisis in East Lothian.”
