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.

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!
