The children have been helping to look atfer the birds that visit our garden. They went on a visit to Strawberry Corner to buy a new bird feeding station and they have been able to watch the birds from the window. They have been making birdcakes and filling the bird feeders with goodies for them to eat. We have taken part in the RSPB Big School Bird Watch and have e-mailed our results and we are now waiting to find out the most common birds that visit our gardens.
January has been a very busy month in the nursery – as usual! We have been celebrating Burns day with a variety of activities including taking part in the ‘Poetry and ‘a’ that!’ competition which
involved the children drawing a picture relating to Burns poems. We also enjoyed eating our Burns supper and
dancing to Scottish music.
We have also been celebrating ‘Chinese New Year’ where we learnt about a culture very different from our own. We had a chinese feast of rice, noodles and vegetable stir-fry then we danced along to the chinese music wearing our dragon and lion heads.
The children have been taking part with great enthusiasm in all our Christmas activities. Some children went to Strawberry Corner to buy our trees and they have now been decorated. We have been thinking about the very First Christmas when Baby Jesus was born and practicing singing our carols. We look forward to seeing everyone at St. Ninian’s Church on Wednesday 17th December at 11.00am and 2.30pm. We have made our Advent rings and are counting the days until our Christmas parties, on Thursday 18th December at 10.00am and 1.00pm, using our Advent calendars.
Our Christmas Fair is on Friday 28th November at 1.30 pm. Come along, bring your friends, join in the fun and help us raise funds for the nursery. There will be tombola, raffle, homebaking, tea and coffee. Our children have also been busy making Christmas craft items to sell – crackers, tree decorations, tinsel hanging decorations and much more. Any donations for the stalls should be handed in by Friday morning. Look forward to seeing you all then.
