Nursery Open Day 29.11.16

Yesterday, the nursery held an open day giving parents and carers the opportunity to ‘stay and play’ and engage in technologies based learning experiences with their children both indoors and out. The children thoroughly enjoyed giving everyone a guided tour and showing them all of the different things they do in nursery. Parent’s and carers were also given the opportunity to provide feedback on their experience, which was all very positive. Staff were delighted to welcome so many parents and carers to this session and would like to thank everyone for their continued support. Our next open day will be held on  Monday 20th of February 2017. The theme for this day will be Mathematics and Numeracy, as chosen by our Consultative Committee.

Primary 4/5 and Flat Stanley

Primary 4/5 had great fun reading the book Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown. We learned a lot about world Geography and watched Flat Stanley travel around the world learning things about different cultures and going on fun adventures.

Primary 4/5 made a water wheel for Switch off Fortnight

We have been doing lots of different activities for Switch off Fortnight and we have been looking at different forms of renewable energy. Primary 4/5 had to make a water wheel. The children worked really well in groups to create a water wheel and they had to problem solve to figure out how to attach the lolly sticks and they needed to make sure they were all at the same angle. The children worked with blu tack and sellotape.

Learning about Hibernation in the nursery

The children have been learning about hibernation in the nursery.  We learned about animals that hibernate and created pictures of these animals.  We then played a card sorting game where we sorted animals into two groups: animals who do hibernate and animals who don’t.  We then sorted these into a chart in our big book.
