World Book Day

We celebrated World Book Day this week. We dressed as our favourite storybook character and shared our books in nursery. We invited parents and carers in to share stories with us and we used the internet to hear authors retelling their stories. World Book Day inspired us to write, draw and paint.

Glenwood Castle

We wanted to change our role play area into something else. We shared our ideas and voted to choose a castle. We decided we needed turrets, a drawbridge and thrones for the King and Queen. We added costumes and made crowns.

We made turrets for the castle


We decorated the turrets to look like old stone.
We made a working drawbridge using pulleys to lift it up.

 

 

 

Consulting children

Children are consulted on decisions made in Glenwood. We recently purchased resources for the house corner following consultation with the children. The children used catalogues to help them make decisions.

I like the pizza because I like pizza! And the birthday cake. It has a pretend knife.– Noah

These (vegetables) look real. I like them better that the plastic ones. -Leo

The eggs look real too. – Rebecca

I like those ones (plates) because there will be enough for all the people. – Aisling

That costs too much. The head teacher won’t have enough money for that. It is like a 100 things and would cost £100! -Fern

One Planet Picnic Pocket Garden

We are delighted to announce that Glenwood Family Centre’s design for the One Planet Picnic Pocket Garden has been selected as a winning entry in the ECO Scotland competition! Our next step is to develop our garden for display in the Garden for Life area of Gardening Scotland, the national gardening and outdoor living show and Scotland’s gardening festival, which takes place from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd June at the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh.

Our design is for a Living Foodbank which will produce fruit and vegetables for families in need. “If you don’t have any food you can come and take some food from the garden.”

One Planet Picnic Pocket Garden

We are taking part in the One Planet Picnic Pocket Garden design competition. We are designing and planning a sustainable garden which can be either based on growing food or a wildlife garden linked with the Global Goals. The Global Goals aim to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change.

The children have been very busy gathering and sharing their ideas as we plan our garden.
