Outdoor learning with the Nursery



In nursery when it is nice weather we have been having a lot of play outside. When weather permits we enjoy having snack outside too.
We have the school sports to look forward to and are busy practising the different races.
At the moment the children seem to be interested in building, so if you have any thoughts or ideas, please feel free to share them with us.
We will also discuss the holidays, and ask the children what they are planning to do with their time.

Nursery to Primary 1 transition

The Nursery children who are moving up to P1 in August have enjoyed the first of their 'taster' mornings. In Nursery they are patiently waiting for their butterflies to emerge from their chrysalises so we spent the morning learning more about the life cycle of the butterfly. We also used tweezers to count caterpillar eggs on to leaves, made playdough caterpillars, played a matching pairs game to find symmetrical butterflies and painted butterfly wings using pipettes instead of paint brushes. The children also had their first PE lesson with Ms. Elson, they especially enjoyed the Mr. Men game! After all that hard work it was a good job they had a chance to stay for lunch and enjoy some of Arna and Wilma's tasty cooking! We in Lower Primary loved having them with us today and can't wait for next time.
