Garden Club Term 1 Update

More lovely times with Garden Club this term. The children have cleared and replenished the beds with compost and horse manure. We have winter cabbages coming along in one of the raised beds, the kitchen will be able to incorporate them into one of the school meals next term.

We’ve transplanted lots of the self seeded seedlings into the propagator at the front of the school. Hopefully they will survive the frosts and we will have a head start with calendula, nasturtium, borage and rocket in the spring and we will have spare plants to sell at the spring fair.

More daffodil bulbs have been planted at the front of the school, I’m looking forward to some cheery yellow in April.

We worked with the Woodland Trust to plant some native Scottish trees around the new school site; Dog Rose up the boundary fence between the willow tunnel and the astro, a Hazel fence at Nursary, a Rowan and Oak tree near the bike parking and Rowan and Silver Birch Trees near the astro.

Christmas in the Nursery

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” in the nursery. We have been making Christmas decorations and hanging them on the Christmas tree. Some of the children have been working in our Santa’s workshop and helping Santa by making Christmas presents. We have been writing letters to Santa and posting them in the post box. We have been making Christmas trees and Christmas stockings and there have been sparkles everywhere! We have been estimating lengths of paper and decorating our own Christmas wrapping paper and wrapping up presents that can be found under our Christmas tree.

We have been listening to lots of stories and have been dressing up and making up our own stories too. We have been practising our Christmas songs and will be singing them for the parents next week. We are looking forward to our Christmas parties on Thursday 19th and we hope a special visitor might be able to come and join us.

We wish everyone a happy Christmas, from all of us in the nursery.

Christmas Lunch

What a great day in the dinner hall today celebrating our annual Christmas lunch. There was a fantastic buzz around the room as the children were singing songs, laughing and enjoying their meal. A joy to see. A big thank you to our catering team for making this event happen.
