We have arranged with Kincorth Academy to have some of their pupils to come and act as reading buddies for our afternoon class. This week saw our first session and it was a great success! The Academy pupils will come to visit every Monday afternoon.

New Term

We are back to Nursery and have hit the ground running! The lovely weather has allowed us to move the majority of our activities outside over the last fortnight. The children have been having lots of fun making the most of our outdoor space.

Fantastic Gymnastics!

This afternoon the children were practising their balancing and jumping skills! They also had to listen carefully to instructions and be patient waiting for their turn.

Easter Egg Decorating

Look at the wonderful eggs the morning Nursery boys and girls decorated!

The winning egg was decorated by Ollie! Well done!!

Take Home Bears

We have four ‘Take Home Bears’ at Nursery who love to go on adventures at the weekends!

Sparkles, Puff, Bruno and Bonnie enjoy joining the children for lots of their activities and routines at home! Here are some pictures from their recent trips:

Our Little Big Maths Targets this week …

Little Big Maths

In Nursery this term we have been starting to do Little Big Maths sessions in our group time. Little Big Maths is a scheme of work designed to support the development of early numeracy. It leads into the work completed in Primary 1-7 during Big Maths sessions.

Little Big Maths is split into 5 sections:
Amounts
Counting
Learn Its
It’s Nothing New
Calculation

ACLIC for short!

We have new targets each week which are up on the Nursery doors. The introduction to the Little Bit Maths book is also on the wall outside Nursery.

If you have any questions, just ask!

Police Visit (PM)

On Monday we had a visit from PC Caulder. She told us about her job and answered some of our questions!
She then took our finger prints and allowed us to have a go with her hand cuffs!
We were allowed to look in the police car, setting off the sirens and pretending to drive! It was so much fun! Thank you so much for coming to see us!!
