This week in nursery we have been learning all about our bodies, especially our hearts and how they pump blood around our body. We have been using stethoscopes to listen to our hearts beat and we have been finding our pulses. We have been running around and exercising to get our pulses up. We have been making lots of ‘Heart Art’.
Today is ‘Wear it Red day’ in aid of the British Heart Foundation. We are wearing red and selling red cakes to raise money. We also have a red raffle.
We love playing with play dough in nursery and it is great for strengthening the muscles in little hands. Here is the recipe:
3 cups plain flour
1 ½ cups salt
6 tsp cream of tartar
3 tbl sp vegetable oil
3 cups water
Food colouring/essential oils as required
Put all the ingredients into a pan and stir continuously over a low heat.

The SEPA team visit St Mary’s

SEPA stands for Scottish Environment Protection Agency. Today they came to talk to Primaries 5 to 7, about Flooding, and what we can to help our environment. Our visitors made it easy to remember the information they were telling us, by being so funny.
SEPA had its own website for kids:, which is worth having a look at.
