Nursery Grand Prix

On the 11th of May the children in Nursery enjoyed a Sponsored Grand Prix. The children really enjoyed speeding round the track followed by a medal and certificate presentation.  We would just like to thank all our parents who donated and came to watch the children.  We have been blown away at the generosity from our families and are delighted to let you all know an amazing £1789 has been raised. 

Also, a big thank you to the children in Primary 7 who very kindly set up the track and helped the children during the Grand Prix.  You were all fantastic!

Stay and Play (week beginning: 2nd May 2022)

It was lovely to welcome Sheuchan nursery parents back into the building for a stay and play session. The children enjoyed showing their families around the nursery. Parents had the opportunity to look around all areas of the nursery and participate in their child’s nursery routine. All the children loved showing off their achievements displayed on their special squares and big book of learning. Staff would like to take the opportunity to thank all our families for coming along and getting involved in your child’s play and learning.

Nursery Visitors

Over the past week the Nursery have welcomed a few visitors into the setting. On Thursday 10th March we had Lighthouse Musicians come to lead a music session with us. During the interactive session the Nursery children played musical instruments and enjoyed some singing games.
On the 15th March we had ChildSmile come into Nursery to restart our ttoothbrushing programme. The Childsmile team read the children a toothbrushing story, discussed the importance of looking after our teeth and modelled the correct toothbrushing technique. We have now started daily toothbrushing after snack during our Nursery sessions.

A walk around Stranraer

On Wednesday 15th March, some of the Nursery children set off on an adventure down the town. Our first stop was at the library where the children had the opportunity to choose their own book which they could explore. The group of children seemed to take an interest in dinosaur books, both fiction and nonfiction. This led to a discussion around where we could find out more about dinosaurs, one child suggested the Museum. After having a snack at the Castle Green, we headed up to the museum where the children had a look around and joined in with some hands-on dinosaur activities.

We look forward to a fun filled first term in Nursery.

Nursery Graduation – 22nd June 2021

Last night our Pre School Children had a Graduation Party to celebrate all their wonderful successes during their time in Nursery.  The party consisted off some fabulous dance moves, party food and a ceremony to finish off.  The children very proudly took to our mini stage to collect their memories, while their friends clapped and cheered.  The Nursery Team would like to wish them all the best as they move in Primary 1, it has been a pleasure having each and every one of them.

Nursery Sports – 7th June 2021

Peep – People Learning Together Programme.

Miss McKie has recently been involved in a new training programme designed to improve children’s life chances, by making the most of everyday learning opportunities – listening, talking, playing, singing and sharing books and stories together through parental involvement.

She is pleased to announce our Sheuchan Nursery PEEP sessions will commence on Wednesday 22nd of January at 10am.  This will be a great opportunity for parent’s to come in to Nursery have a cuppa and a blether with other parent’s, spend time with their children and learn all that PEEP has to offer. Siblings welcome.

Should you have any questions please speak to Miss McKie who would love to know you are able to attend.
