Nursery Learning wb 16th May 2022

The children have been continuing to take part in various mark making / writing opportunities using a variety of different media.

We have also been exploring symmetrical images within the environment by matching butterfly images on duplo blocks.

The nursery children who attended the Friday session also had the opportunity to go along to the school assembly as we continue our Transition to P1 journey.

Nursery Learning wb 10th May 2022

This week both groups have explored our local environment and identifying some features. We went for a walk around the local village and to the banking where we spotted the bridge – we had lots of fun shouting and hearing our echoes.

As we explore minibeasts, we have been introduced to our nursery caterpillars that we will be keeping safe and watching them grow.  The children have taken part in various mark making / writing opportunities experimenting with making letter shapes and creating letters/words independently.


Nursery Learning week beginning 2nd May

This week in nursery we have been learning all about mini beasts. Both groups of children have been out in the school grounds hunting for mini beasts and we found lots. We used mini beast hunt sheets to organise our findings by marking off each insect as we found them.

As part of this learning we have been exploring different mini beast songs such as Incy wincy spider and the ants go marching, the Monday/Tuesday group asked if there was a song about a centipede so we played “the wee Kirkcudbright centipede” and made our own human centipede in the garden to act out the song.

Nursery Learning WB 25th April 2022

This week we are continuing to plant and grow both indoors and outdoors. We are painting / drawing Sunflowers and naming the key parts of a plant.

We visited the tyre structure in the school grounds where we have been learning about positional language (behind, over, under).
