Over the past couple of weeks we have been visiting P1 in small groups to play and learn in the “shared area”. We discovered that this area is very similar to Nursery. It has role play, construction, writing/mark making, sand and water trays, games and puzzles etc. We were able to make choices about where we played just as we do in Nursery everyday. The Chinese restaurant role play and the sand tray filled with rice were both very popular choices. All the children coped well with the transition and spoke positively about their experience. We will continue to visit in small groups over the next few weeks and we look forward to working with the P1 classes after the Easter holidays.
We celebrated this wonderful day by dressing up as our favourite book characters. We took turns to share 3 things about our character at Together Time. Our friends from P6 joined us to read our library books. On Wednesday morning Jan from Asda popped in to read us a story and drop off a present of some books. Thank you Jan, World Book Day is a great opportunity to celebrate books and reading. What book will you buy with your voucher?
We love exploring our outdoors in all weathers but we were especially excited to play in the snow. We explored motion and forces through sledging. We retested the sledges on dry grassy slopes and found out that the sledge moves on the snow as it is slippy and slidey.placeholder://l

We have been learning about two of Scotland’s heroes and were excited to jump on the number 2 bus – a double decker no less – to head into the city centre to visit their statues. Firstly we visited the statue of Robert Burns and we noticed that he was holding a wee flower in his hand. The flower is a daisy and we discovered that Robert Burns used to feel sad when he ploughed them up in the fields. Next we strolled along to the statue of William Wallace. He had a big, heavy looking sword that he needed 2 hands to hold and a horn to blow to get help from his friends. We were able to listen and share lots of information about the statues back at Nursery. We said that William Wallace protected Scotland. Before heading back to Nursery we popped across the road to St Mark’s Church for snack. We were able to stay safe on the bus and walking in the city centre. We were able to listen to instructions and information about the statues. We were very patient and well behaved waiting for the bus home!
We had such a lovely day in the woods for our final Wee Green Space of the session.
The children took a cuddly toy to share the experience with, so there were many animals and characters joining in with the fun. Fun was our focus of the day with the children singing songs and sharing with their grown-ups their learning and skills.
I think the photos show the fun we had. 😀
The Nursery team would like to thank all the parents and grandparents who have helped at Wee Green Space throughout the year, your support makes it a success. 😀
After the children finished their snack the children went on to the school field to meet their Buddy who will help them at break time and lunchtime for the first few weeks in Primary 1. The Primary 6 children were so excited to meet their Buddy as they realise what a responsible role this is. All the children had great fun on the field.
