Nursery children had the opportunity to take part in 2 planned trips this week. Younger children had fun burning off their energy at the Den in the Glen and older children were on an educational visit to Transport museum in Alford. A volunteer had handmade and donated us some Wellbeing Bears. The 8 bears are helping children learn about the SHANARRI indicators. Safe, Healthy, Achieving, Nurtured, Active, Respected, Responsible, Included. Children interact with Mrs Safe on bus tips and Miss Healthy during snack time, etc.


Nursery children are accessing local amenities more regularly now. Here are morning session children at the local library choosing some resources to borrow. We
also attend Bookbug sessions organised for 2-5 year old age group.

Nursery children are actively involved in the community. We regularly have healthy snacks and lunch at the Fersands Café, visit charity shop to buy some new resources and use the pantry, which helps us cut down the costs for play food.

We were very fortunate to be able to get a Smartboard for our nursery classroom. It enables children access wider range of learning opportunities whilst learning how to use technology safely. Here are children playing connect four

Children visited ASDA bakers on pancake day and learned how pancakes are made. Everyone was able to taste the delicious pancakes after the trip.

One of our staff member’s family member is a drummer, and we invited him to come along to perform to our nurser children. Everyone had an opportunity to play drums to create their own music. This learning experience has inspired many of our children to learn more about other musical instruments.

As part of our improvement plan- partnerships with parents, we held a training session on Schematic Play and Makaton for parents and carers. Nursery children are learning to communicate using Makaton and have been observed using it at home too.

We have been able to invite parents for “Stay and Play “sessions, both children and parents loved this experience and are willing to be regularly involved in the learning of their children. Here is one of our parent-volunteer, reading a story in Polish to the nursery class.
