Nursery 2017-2018


MARCH 2018

As the children have become interested in planting, we are entering the Gardening Scotland competition in June.  This month we are using our nurturing skills to care for our sunflowers which we wish to enter.  Please come in and have a look at our efforts.  We will also have created a Garden Centre shop in our nursery library area as we learn and gain knowledge about our plants.

We are also learning about shapes in the nursery.  What shapes can you spot in the environment at home?  Adults and carers are very welcome to join us for family breakfasts (please keep an eye on the noticeboard).  We will be having lots of different shaped toast (depending on Mrs McDougall and her helper's cutting skills).

Through our planting we are reading Jack and the Beanstalk.

If you have and junk - e.g. cardboard boxes, newspaper etc. - please hand into nursery as we hope to create and build a giant beanstalk.

We will be talking a lot about Achieving as that is our Wellbeing focus throughout March.  If you have any personal achievement's from home (for example helping your adult or putting on your own jacket or swimming)  you would like to share with your key worker - please let us know.


Word Aware

Our words we are learning about are:







Please ask us about our learning.

Many Thanks,

Feelings for February

We have been learning about 'nurture'. If you nurture something such as a young child or a young plant, you care for it while it is growing and developing.

We are learning that our adult's job is to care for us and look after us.

We are talking and thinking about our feelings in February.

October 2017

Welcome to our nursery class page.  On here, through the school app and twitter you will find out what we have been learning about in nursery.

We have been settling well into the nursery routines, learning lots of new and exciting ideas through play.

It has been lovely to see family members coming in to nursery and filling in your child's ALL ABOUT ME booklets for our learning books.  If you haven't had a chance yet, please speak to a member of staff who would be happy to arrange a suitable time to yourself.

It has also been wonderful to have family join us for STAY AND PLAY sessions.  We love having adults in to share our learning - please see our noticeboard or a member of staff for signing up for a Stay and Play session.

We have been learning about our WELLBEING WHEEL and in particular how to stay SAFE and INCLUDED.

"We hold hands on walks."

"play with my friends"

"we share some toys"

"share snack"
