Our First Weeks Back at Nursery

We have been learning lots in our first weeks back after the holiday!

We have been using stories and songs to give us ideas for drawing and writing.

The Rainbow Fish, Elmer and Hooray for Fish have been helping us learn about pattern, colour and counting.

We have been using our own ideas about our play areas to add some new toys. We are learning how to listen and take turns to share our ideas.

We have been talking about our own experiences outside nursery which led to a very exciting discussion about swimming one morning!

Both AM and PM groups have made a great start to the new term.

Well done to everyone 🙂


Congratulations to two of our nursery children who received Special Merit awards for their fantastic paintings of ‘Feathered Friends’. They collected their prize during a special celebration at the Scottish Gallery of Modern Art – Modern One. Their paintings will be on display until 24th September. After this date they will travel to different displays – one in Giffnock and another in Dumfries.

Congratulations to all our nursery children who took part and created fantastic pieces of artwork for the competition.

Nursery in March

The boys and girls have been very busy in nursery this session. Our bulbs are starting to bloom and we have been tidying up our little garden patch. Whilst digging we found this long wriggly worm. This means our soil will be good for planting.Some have been trying out their own experiments (in the sand) to see if the seeds will grow.

The morning children have been busy building – houses, dens, ships and cars. They have been working out how tall their creations should be and what they need to use to make it. The builders are in discussion outside the cabin to see what work needs to done.

The pirates have also been in the nursery garden and some treasure has been found. We have been counting how many gold coins we have found before we put them in the treasure boxes.

Inside the children have been thinking about the different animals on the farm and where they live. Enclosures have been made for them to sleep in.
