Today we had a family baking morning. Parents were invited to make bread with their children. Parents and children learned the process and benefits of baking with their child example: developing social skills, good hygiene, using small motor skills, Nutritional vaules. Parents also enjoyed meeting and working with other parents.
Thanks to all for partipating.
Using props with songs and rhymes is a great way for children to interact further with the rhymes which are one of the best ways to help with language development. Using rhymes that also involve counting and numbers to help to start to develop a good number sense later in life.
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE SECRET SANTA IN OUR COMMUNITY WHO GENEROUSLY DONATED 53 TICKETS AND TRANSPORT TO THE KING’S THEATRE PANTO ALADDIN. THE SHOW WAS DEEMED MORE APPROPRIATE FOR OUR 3-5 YEAR OLD CHILDREN, SO FOLLOWING OUR CENTRE VALUES OF EQUITY, WE CARRIED OUT A FAIR BALLOT. THE LUCKY CHILDREN AND PARENTS PICKED WERE EXTREMELY GRATEFUL AND HAD A FAMILY FUN TIME.
THANK YOU AGAIN SECRET SANTA WE KNOW YOU CAN’T GIVE TO EVERYONE BUT WE REALLY APPRECIATED YOUR GIFT TO SOME.
SOME OF THE CHILDREN IN THE ALLY BALLY BEE ROOM, ZICKETY DICKETY DOCK AND AIKEN DRUM ROOM JOINED UP TOGETHER TO LEARN HOW TO MAKE BREAD. THE CHILDREN WERE ABLE TO SEE THE PROCESS OF MAKING BREAD AND LEARN ABOUT MEASURE AND THE IMPORTANCE OF KNEADING THE MIXTURE TO FORM THE DOUGH.
DID YOU KNOW?
Cooking encourages children’s thinking, problem-solving, and creativity. It also allows children the opportunity to use the knowledge they have and apply it by counting, measuring, following a sequence, following directions, and cause and effect.
A great big thank you to Moddies Funeral Care in Barrhead for donating a T.V. for our Festive Fun Day raffle. It was won by the Jamieson family who were absolutely delighted.
Also a great big thank you to Scotmid, Wagamamas, Nona Ginas, Digital Photography, Arthurlie Inns, Dominoes Pizza, Aurs Cafe, and to all the familes who made donations. We were able to raise a staggering £1,1516 due to all your support.
Thank you to everyone for your continued support and for attending our Fun Day.
The children had a visit from Colin the piper who played for the children. The children also got an opportunity to play the chanter, dance and sing. The chanter is a pipe played with two hands. It produces the melody and contains either a single or double reed. … Drones are long tubes with single reeds. When a player starts to play the bagpipes, the drones emit one continuous sound that the melody is played over with the chanter.
Back in the playroom the children decorated their space with Scottish flags and tartan. At the craft table they learned how to produce paper weaving and painted some Scottish Flags.
Thank you so much to our families past, present and future for attending our Festive Fun Day. It was an amazing community event and great to see everyone having fun.

The event was such a success due to all your continued support. You have helped us to raise more than £1,400 with more money coming in. This will help with our festivities for our children. Thank you once again.
