The nursery children are really enjoying this theme! They have taken great care of one another in their hospital, helped interview each other about suspicious characters in their role as Police Officers, put out fires and rescued people as Fire Fighters and they are currently busy working in their Post Office! In addition, they enjoyed a visit from PC Smith, including listening to the sirens and sitting in the back of the Police Van! They were also thrilled to get a turn of the fire hose and sit in the Fire Engine (which came to visit) and P1/2 came too!

The nursery children are currently learning about farming and the Harvest Festival. They have enjoyed playing with the farm animals and equipment, have ground wheat to make flour for their apple crumble and listened to stories such as ‘The Little Red Hen’ and Rosie’s Walk (including creating a puppet show about the stories for their friends). They have learned a few themed songs and made scarecrows to decorate the church for Harvest Assembly. A great current favourite is exploring the Farm Shop with their friends as they learn about money and the role of shop workers. In addition, they are learning about Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year and have enjoyed trying apples dipped in honey and Challah bread.

Education Accessibility Strategy
As you know, every local authority Education Department has a statutory duty to develop an Accessibility Strategy and action plan. We are currently working on our new strategy and as part of that process we have prepared questionnaires for parents, partners and school staff.
The link to the questionnaires on the East Lothian Consultation Hub is below.
Please complete the survey following this link:
