The afternoon children went to the school library on Tuesday. This was a lovely trip to talk about the Library and also reinforce how important it is to look at and read books. They got the chance to read some of the books and also got a story read to them from the Bookbug Explorer bag. This is a bag that every 3 year old receives from the Scottish book trust. They will receive it on Friday. This contains 3 books and a music CD that you can enjoy together.
The children in the morning group went out in the woods for a walk. They were given a partner and they were to work and share with them. They were looking to see how many different kinds of leaves they could find and when they found a leaf they were to see if they could find it on their sheet. The children loved this activity and they worked very well as part of a team. After this they were doing some bark rubbings. The children love going into the woods to explore nature.
On Friday the children went out into the woods to be Nature detectives. We looked for leaves and checked if they were on our list. We looked to see how many different kinds of leaves we could find. After we did some bark rubbing this was good fun.
Today we had special visitors to the Nursery. Elaine and Flossy came to see us. They came to tell us about how important it is for us to brush our teeth. We all got a chance to brush Flossy’s teeth and Elaine read us a story. At the end Elaine watched us brush our teeth and she was very pleased at our brushing and at how sparkly our teeth were.
Today we went to the Primary1 classroom to do some counting. We were counting spiders together. The challenge for us was to count how many spiders and the challenge for the Primary1’s was to add numbers to 20. They all did a fab job.
