I hope you are all staying safe and enjoying the snow ⛄️
I wanted to let everyone know that if you had a Talk and Tell session booked for Wednesday or Thursday of this week and have missed it due to the snow storm, that I will be in touch with you next week to rearrange your appointment. You will not miss out on your Talk and Tell time, it will just be at a different time.
Stay safe and warm and I shall see you next week.
We have been working really hard to win our Eco Green Flag. We have put in a lot of effort. Some things that we have done is our eco litter pick rota, always picking up rubbish and putting it in the bin, our 3G litter picks, building habitats for animals in our eco garden, tidying the eco garden and the John Muir garden and design competitions for the garden. Through all this hard work we have earned our second green flag!
A huge congratulations to our Eco Committee!
Please remember it’s Earth Hour tomorrow!!
Switch as much as you can between 8.30 and 9.30pm to help raise awareness of the need to reduce the demand for energy.
Just a reminder that on Saturday 19th March Earth Hour will be taking place.At 8:30 to 9:30. Everyone has to switch off something electrical in your household to save energy and to make the world a better place. So please try and tell your siblings and guardians.
This year St.Martins have recycled a total of
10Kg of Christmas cards!
we just want to thank you for your help in achieving 10 kg of cards
The eco committee are going to be recycling Christmas cards. Instead of putting them in the bin bring them in and we will recycle them. Eco committee will come round in the new term to collect them.
The eco committee wish everyone a Merry Christmas and an eco friendly New Year.
In the Nursery cloakroom area you will find the children’s big learning book. Please feel free to have a look to see what the children are asking questions about and leave a little comment so that we can share this with the children.
We also welcome your suggestions for improvement and comments about what you like about our nursery. Please give us this feedback so that we are able to effect the change that you want to see happen.
Next to our big learning book we also have slips for you to fill in to either compliment or complain about an aspect of the service that we provide. You are our service users and we appreciate all the feedback that you are able to provide us with. There is an available box for you to post your responses. You can write your name on the comment/suggestion slip etc if you wish but if you would rather leave it anonymously then please do.
See you tonight at the ‘Meet the Teacher’ open evening.
Mrs McDonald and Ms Stewart
For this week’s homework we have been making musical instruments using recycled materials (Sarah). We are going to form a band with all our instruments. Miss O’Hara is very impressed with them all!
We have been measuring in metres using a metre stick. We were measuring big things such as the Monkey Bars (Harris R), climbing frame (Lilley), the buckets (Robert), the big red door (Ben) and the wall with the stairs (Kristin).
In gym we are working on our fitness (Hayden). We have been working on: relay racing (Ben), hurdle racing (Kristin), jumping and hopping using both feet (Noah).
There was a problem in our village this week and there was too much rubbish all over the village (Heidi). We had to think of ways to clean it up and stop this problem (Hayden). We were thinking of ways to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle (Zosia).
On Friday the 1st of May there was a presentation of the proposals emerging from the Tranent Town Centre Charrette. The display material is now on show at Tranent Library until the 15th May 2015. There is also a feedback survey available in the library which can be completed and returned at reception.
The exhibition is also available at https://eastlothianconsultations.co.uk/policy-partnerships/planning-for-tranent-town-centre-1 with a link to the on-line version of the feedback survey.
It would be great if you were able to help our community by taking part in the survey and popping in to the library to have a look.
