Many of our children are celebrating the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha this week with friends and family. A big thank you to Abdul Hadi’s mum for bringing in cup cakes for the children to decorate as part of their celebrations.
Since we returned to nursery last week, the children have helped harvest some of the foods which have been growing in the nursery playground and at The Croft. We had a great crop of potatoes, which the children enjoyed at snack today with a little bit of cheese. We are also about to pick more plums as they are nearly ripe and pull up the carrots.
A few of the children went to The Croft and came back with beetroot and rubber beans for everyone to rake home.
It was lovely to have all the children back in nursery last week and they all seemed happy to be back. This morning , the children had a short exercise session before outdoor play started to set them ( and the staff) up for the day. This is going to be a daily activity, with the children doing short bursts of intensive exercise. It has been suggested by professionals that this is more effective than low level exercise for a longer time.
It was a beautiful day at East Links today for our annual Leavers Trip. A great time was had by all and here are just some of the photos from a lovely day out.
Good luck at Primary School to all our children moving on in the summer. We will miss you all.
Today was a special day at nursery as we held our Leavers Ceremony. The children sang for all the parents and friends and then those moving on to primary school all received a book, photo album and a special certificate. We are all very proud of you all and wish you good luck at school.
This week, we have been trying to find a way of using all the over- ripe fruit in the nursery kitchen rather than throw it away. Some of the children helped make banana muffins and the “thumbs up” shows what everyone thought of them!
Recently, we were lucky enough to have some plants donated by a parent and so today some of the children went off to the allotments in Leith to do some planting. It was a lovely walk to get there and the children had a great time.
