Nursery in May

As the weather has been getting better, more children have been choosing to spend time outdoors in nursery. We have been finding lots of different insects in our nursery garden, and even a frog one day! We have been learning to look after different things, eg our beans we have been growing, washing our dolls and soon our caterpillars will arrive! Some of the morning children decided they would like to run a cafe next week for snack, with lots of ideas like making the tables fancy and having newspapers and comics to read. Our morning children are beginning their transition to school, with story sessions, playground visits and a Treasure Hunt next week.
Here are some of our photos of what we’ve been getting up to in the nursery… Continue reading Nursery in May

P2/3 Incredible Week

This week we visited Edinburgh Castle as part of our class focus learning. We got to see the prisons in the castle, the Lang Stairs and the Honours of Scotland. The prisoners left lots of artefacts behind including what they had engraved onto the thick wooden prison doors. During one exhibition there were waxwork models of blacksmiths doing their work. We got to go into the Royal Apartments and see were King James VI and I was born! It was a very small room. Some of us even managed to hear the 1 o’clock cannon go off!

We learnt about the Easter Story before making our Easter cards!

We had our last week of basketball. We played lots of matches in teams. It was great fun and we got to use all of the skills we have been learning all at the same time.

We gave an amazing performance to our mums and dads playing the steel pans. We worked very hard to learn where the notes are on the steel pans. Miss Torley thought we were SUPER!!!

Happy Easter!! See you after the holidays!! J

Learning about Dinosaurs in the Nursery

Recently, the children found 2 eggs in the nursery. We all talked about what might be inside, and waited patiently…
When we came back after the weekend, we found 2 little baby dinosaurs, and we planned what we would like to find out about them.
We found out information using books and the internet. We measured bones, and sticks, and dinosaur feet!
We created stories, and art work all about what we had learned.
