As part of a focus on numbers, some of the children went for a walk around the area last week and took photographs of as many numbers as they could. We talked about all the numbers back in nursery and why we need to have them and recognise them in order to go about our lives. Great job everyone.
After harvesting some of the vegetables from our allotment last week, we’ve had cheesy mash and vegetable soup for snack thus week. Yum yum!
It’s great to be back at nursery for a new session and lovely to welcome back our returning children this week.
It’s been a busy week and today both classes went out for trips. Room 1 went to The Croft to harvest some of the vegetables planted earlier in the year. We picked potatoes carrots and beetroot and say lots of flowers and butterflies.
Room 2 went to Portobello Beach and had great fun travelling on the bus and playing in the sand.
We all had a fantastic time on our annual trip to East Links yesterday. The sun came out and all the children had the chance to explore the park and use all the gross motor skills they have been developing this year. It was a lovely end to their nursery adventure and we would all like to take this opportunity to wish all our children good luck in their new schools.
Fun was had by all on Friday at the Teddybear’s Picnic with teddies Galore and lots of goodies to eat. When it started to rain, the teachers even came up with a novel way of keeping. Everyone dry!
Yesterday was nice and sunny so we were able to set the butterflies free!
Over the last few weeks, the children have been waiting patiently for our caterpillars to spin cocoons and then emerge as butterflies. We have been reading the story of “The Hungry Caterpillar” and there has been a lot of interesting butterfly art work too.
