The children have been “bug hunting” in the garden and have found snails, worms, butterflies and more. When they want to know more about these insects, staff will support this by encouraging children to look in books and also find out information online.
After we picked the vegetable from the allotment last week, we talked about them with the children and they asked if they could make soup. They cleaned, chopped and stirred and then tucked in to some yummy!!
These children had to work very hard together to pull this Turnip out of the ground and afterwards enjoyed watching the cartoon story of the “Enormous Turnip”
The staff and children have been busy making a video for those of you starting nursery this month. Usually you would have had the chance to visit but unfortunately this is not possible right now. The first video is for children starting in room one and the second for those starting in room two. Hope these are useful.
Some of the children braved the rain yesterday to take a trip to “The Croft” , our allotment at Leith Community Garden. Lots of vegetables had been planted last year and now they are ready to be picked. We came home with turnips, potatoes, beetroot, green beans and a very large courgette!
Armed with trowels and wearing our wellie boots, the children collected the vegetables enthusiastically and had to dig deep to hunt for the potatoes!
Once the children have discussed what to do next, watch out for the next post to see what happened to all the vegetables…
We are really excited to be welcoming children back into nursery this week and are so pleased to say that all the children are happy to be back and playing with their friends with lots of smiles and hand washing too!
It’s nearly the end of the holidays and everyone at Stanwell Nursery would like to take this opportunity to wish all the children starting school next week good luck and hope you have a great first day.
Thank you to those that have added a stone to make our Lockdown Caterpillar a little longer
It has been very strange times in the last few months and as a result it has been such a shame that the children going on to school in August have missed their last days of attending Stanwell. We would like to say a huge thank you to the children and parents for making our job such a pleasure and would like to say Good Luck to everyone . Hopefully this video will give you all a wee reminder of your time at nursery.
As mentioned previously, our Caterpillar is now on the nursery wall so please decorate a stone, add it to the Caterpillar and let’s somehow long we can make it.
