We have been lucky enough to receive some funding through Cycling Scotland and took delivery of 5 new bikes and helmets today.
3 balance bikes and 2 pedal bikes to help improve skills and confidence in cycling.
We also had a member of staff trained in how to support the children to learn about safety when cycling.
Timetable for Nursery events leading up to Christmas
Juliet, Shaniah and Billi- Louise helped make these yummy Christmas tree biscuits and added some mini baubles. Everyone enjoyed their little treat for snack today.
It’s December already and getting nearer to Christmas so today it was time to decorate the nursery Christmas tree. Lots of lights and baubles and excited children!
The nursery has started sending two Bears home with the children at weekends for a little adventure. The bears spend the weekend with each family and record what they get up to in a diary. During the week, each child will share with the class what the Bears enjoyed doing.
This is a great way of building imaginative play and also for communication skills.
Today was St Andrew’s Day and the children were learning about why we celebrate this day each year in Scotland.
We had shortbread for snack, painted some saltires and did a spot of Scottish dancing to some bagpipe music.
This week, we have been focusing on road safety and the children have taken part in a variety of activities to reinforce the importance of crossing the road safely at the correct locations.
We had a pretend zebra crossing to practise on before we all went for a walk around the area to use the crossings in a real life situation. The children made traffic light biscuits with red, yellow and green smarties.
We also used technology to learn by playing some games on the tablets devised by Children’s Traffic Club.
Hopefully we will all be safe and remember to keep an adults hand when crossing.
