Thanks to all Parents, Grandparents and helpers who came out last Saturday to help us to organise our garden area.It’s great to see it all looking so tidy and ready for the Spring. It was lovely to have the company of some of our children and hopefully we will have more in the Spring. We even came across our resident frog!
It was agreed that we should meet up again early Spring, maybe towards the end of February, to see what else we can do to make our grounds even better.There are some bird boxes and butterfly hides that we could fix to the trees and some ideas that need a little concrete – do we have anyone with experience of concrete mixing out there?
We also managed to get some features fixed on to the walls. Our new water wall is a big hit with the children and the mirror arch… well, it’ll be interesting to see what the children make of that… something to do with a fairyland, maybe?
On Thursday morning, Kayleigh from the Zoo Lab visited the morning nursery to show the children some unusual creatures. We all learned some amazing facts about them, eg the cockroach only goes at one speed, and the millipede can grow new legs!
The morning and afternoon sessions had a fantastic time today, reading and sharing our favourite stories! Thank you parents for your support in preparing the children – it was certainly worth it as they all looked amazing.
We started our day with a special parade around the gym hall. The whole school watched as we walked around in our lovely costumes showing everyone our books (we thought they all looked great, too). Back at the nursery, we had so many books to read, we invited Primary 5/6 to come and help us. All the children were thoroughly engaged and listened well to their stories and to the others in their group.
Thanks again to our helpers – you helped to make it a special day for us!
