Final Wee Green Space

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. ๐Ÿ˜€

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. ๐Ÿ˜€

Transition to Primary 1 – Part 2

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.

Transition to Primary 1 – part 1

As part of our pupils transition the children take part in a special snack in the gym hall to familiarise them with the hall and the dinner routine. This was very successful with all children listening carefully and following instructions when collecting their food and putting away their trays when finished. It also gave the children the opportunity to meet Kathleen our school cook.

Minibeast Hotels

After the interest generated by the minibeast hunt, the children were challenged to make two different types of minibeast homes. The children worked in small groups with adult help to build their structures. The children worked cooperatively finding sticks, leaves and moss; problem solving and changing their ideas when needed. Some were very imaginative including furniture for the bugs.

Wood Working Skills

Miss McKinnon has been busy introducing wood work skills to the nursery children. She has been taking children in pairs introducing the tools and how to use them safely. So far the children have been hammering nails into wood and then progressing to screwing in nails to the wood. I think the photos show the responsibility, concentration and focus used by the children on these activities. Well done!
