Well, we’ve almost made it to the end of the “intensive” phase of Food Dudes. Friday is the last day of our Food Dudes daily tastings. After this, it’s up to you to keep the process of healthy eating going at home. A letter will be going out this week to give more information about what happens next.

Katherine from the Food Dudes company will be joining us on Friday to give you some more information about the Weekly Picnics and what your responsibility is with them. She will be available to talk to at pick-up time at 11:20.

In the Morning Nursery, we are focussing on behaviour and feelings. As mentioned before, we have started using green sticker books that the children are keeping in their trays. They are intended to focus on the good behaviour the children are doing to celebrate and encourage good behaviour.

Miss Paisley, our HNC student, is doing a series of activities about the senses. The children are learning about scent, hearing, touch, sight, and taste.

In the Afternoon Nursery, we’re focussing on the body. The children have shown some interest in how their stomach works, the parts of the body, and using a variety of materials and sources to learn about these things.

On 6 March, we will be celebrating World Book Day. The children can dress in their pyjamas to celebrate, as that’s what you wear when you read Bedtime Stories. Each Nursery will also be working on their own class display to put up in the school about a favourite class book.

On 21 March, we will be taking part in Sport Relief. The children can bring in a £1 donation to the charity and dress in sports clothing. There will be sports activities taking place on the day as well.

The children are continuing to participate in Food Dudes. Our last day of the intensive phase of the programme is on the 28 February. After the intensive phase, we will be having a weekly picnic on Fridays. More information about this part of the programme will go out closer to the date.

School & Nursery Applications

All School and Nursery applications should have been submitted by now. If you have not submitted an application, please visit the main office to get the appropriate paperwork. Children who have turned 4 in January or February are eligible to apply for both School and Nursery. Please see your child’s teacher – Mrs. Westacott or Miss Fraser – for advice or questions about which choice would be most appropriate for your child.

Buggies & Scooters

Please do no leave buggies and scooters outside of the Nursery. They can get in the way, and we cannot guarantee their safety as this is a public area. Thank you for your cooperation.

Wow Board – Celebrating Achievements

We have added a new “Wow Board” just outside of the Nursery doors. We hope to use this board to celebrate the children’s accomplishments in and out of school. We want to encourage you as parents to add to this board to share any achievements your child has made. This could be reaching a new level in a class such as swimming, learning how to zip their jacket, or helping make a meal at home. You can add photos and a brief description of the accomplishment and put it up on the board.

Sticker Books – Praising Good Behaviour

The children in the Red and Blue Nurseries have each been given their own sticker book to keep in their tray. When children earn a sticker for various desirable behaviours, they can put it in their sticker book. Staff will write a brief note about why they earned their sticker. We encourage you to have a wee look at their achievements and praise them to continue reinforcing desirable behaviour both at home and in Nursery. Please make sure these sticker books don’t make their way home.

Library Books

Please remember that library books are to be brought back to Nursery on Thursdays. New books are issued on Fridays. Please take the time to read with your child at home. This is a special and important time you can spend together. Reading aloud to children helps develop vocabulary, imagination, print awareness, attention span, and social skills. These are all great skills to development as your children get ready to start school.

Learning Journeys

The children’s Learning Journeys are displayed in the cloakroom on bookshelves. We want to encourage you all to take a few minutes to look at your child’s Learning Journey to see what they have been up to in Nursery. We also want to welcome you to add to them. You can add photos, drawings, dialogue, or a wee note to tell what your child has done at home. We want to get a clear, well rounded picture of your child represented in their Learning Journeys. If we can get you to add to them too, this will help accomplish our goal.
