The children have been helping to nurture our plants in the garden, they have been learning about what flowers and plants need to grow. We found out they grow best with sunshine and water. We will continue to look after them and observe the flowers growing.

The children were developing and showing off their football skills during a session on the pitch. They started off with a warm up game of fruit bowl which involved them matching the coloured markers into the correct fruit bowl and moving their bodies in different ways – running forwards, backwards and sideways. Good listening skills were being encouraged as they followed instructions in the traffic light game – they had to stop and start, balance their foot on the ball, jump over the speed-bumps and roll the ball around their bodies when they came to a roundabout. The best part was running with the ball close to their feet for good control, take aim and score a goal. They lasted until the final whistle blew. Next week we will play football at the zoo.

Pipe dreams!

Thank you to Alex and Lenny from Wolseley for delivering a van load of pipes, pallets and two baths to our nursery garden.
We can’t wait to explore and investigate our new resources. Watch out for further photographs to see what the children do with these fantastic gifts.

The nursery children took part in the Tesco Bank art competition and painted a great collection of creepy crawlies and slimy things. We were very lucky to have a second prize winner in the nursery category. He was able to view his painting on the gallery wall during a visit to Edinburgh National Art Gallery where he received his certificate and a copy of his painting. Please visit this free exhibition during the summer holidays. We also held a gallery viewing back at the nursery with all the children’s paintings for the parents and carers to view and we enjoyed having all the classes from the school come to view the gallery and they left us some very positive comments.
