Autumn Walk

In the nursery we have been talking about the season of Autumn and what we can see around us that tells us it’s Autumn time. We have been collecting conkers, berries, seeds and leaves and studying them with the magnifying glasses in the nursery.

So today we all went for a walk around Figgate Park to see what Autumn treasures we could find and to look at the Autumn colours. In the morning the whole nursery went out, including the Two’s room. The afternoon group went out later this afternoon as well and found lots of things that show us it really is Autumn!

Welcome to our new Primary 1 children!

This morning, some of our new Primary 1s came along with their parents and carers to meet their new teachers and to get used to the learning spaces.

After a wee story and a chat with their new teachers, Primary 6 did an excellent job as our new buddies, taking the children along to their classrooms and helping them to explore the different areas. Here are a few photographs of the morning. Well done to all our new Primary 1s!

Our Mud Kitchen Has Arrived!

B0799BF4-CB2F-48D1-AF0F-3C3425B780B51BCCD94C-4B44-4526-9E99-CCD6E422CACDEF853B9E-0096-4D49-9212-D1CD959CAEA56B7C4A3C-DA16-4F83-B5E8-6C0806F2B8DCWe are delighted to see the arrival of our new purpose built mud kitchen in our nursery garden. A huge thank you to Orocco Joinery for taking on the project and producing such a wonderful resource for our children. In the words of Jude, “It’s fantastic!” Another big thank you to St. John’s Parent Council for providing this for our nursery as it will be enjoyed for years to come.

Nursery Welly Walk

The nursery class went on a welly walk around Figgate Park to raise funds to develop our nursery garden. We were very lucky with the weather as it was dry but the park had lots of puddles for us to splash in! The park has lots of signs of spring such as daffodils, blossom on the trees and the children spotted that the birds were starting to build their nests in the trees.

We were on ‘otter watch’ on the bridge (with no sighting to report) and the swans and ducks were keen to come over and see what we were doing. Our reflections in the water were a great talking point and we even found a robot in the park. Some of the children suspected that the robot got up there using honey that he stuck on his shoes.

We are delighted to report that the welly walk has raised over £835. Thank you to all who sponsored us and to all the helpers on the day. Well done boys and girls!
