In all our rooms we love exploring our favourite books. We use puppets and props to help us retell traditional tales.
“The troll is scary! He tries to eat the goats. I like the bit when the goat hits him with its horns.”
Taking part in regular Bookbug sessions, we have enjoyed listening to familiar stories and we have been learning some new songs, as well as reciting our favourite nursery rhymes.
Look out for links to our Google meet Bookbug sessions next week for Math Week Scotland and you can join in from home too!
Our Children’s Committee met recently to discuss what we can do for Fairtrade Fortnight. They created a mind map of ideas.
The children decided to use some Fairtrade ingredients to bake banana cup cakes. We followed a recipe and we had lots of measuring and weighing to do.
The cup cakes tasted yummy! We thought it would be a great idea to sell the ingredients in our Family Fun Bags to allow everyone the chance to make Fairtrade banana cup cakes at home.
We are starting monthly sessions of Bookbug and Musicality (Literacy through music) for parents and their Glenwood children. Please come along and join us. Let us know if you can manage to allow us to organise the children.

Hide, Find and Rehide
We have been busy decorating stones to hide in our local parks for our families within Glenwood and the community, to enjoy finding, rehiding and even decorating our own stones to hide.
This is a great way to get active and creative whilst spending quality time with family and friends without spending any money.
By the end of the week, we aim to have stones hidden in Eastwood Park and Rouken Glen Park. Please feel free to take your child out on a ‘stone hunt’ and even add to our collection by designing your own special stone. If you find a stone, you will be able to tell if it is one of ours as it has our twitter address on it @GlenwoodFC. Once you’ve found the stone you can take a photo, rehide it or hide one of your own, then post to twitter.
We hope you enjoy this fun experience with your children.
What you need
- A stone (any size)
- Varnish (This could be clear nail varnish)
We love to welcome parents into Glenwood to help us learn.
Ethan’s mum told us all about her job as an airline pilot.
Thomas’s mum joined us as we played a number game.Perhaps you can help us? Please speak to a member of staff if you would like to help in any way.
What a beautiful spring morning for our walking group for parents on their first walk round Rouken Glen Park! All parents and carers are welcome to join us and this walk is suitable for parents with prams and buggies. Ask staff for more details.
Well done to the parents committee for a very good ladies night. Thank you to stallholders, raffle donations and everyone who attended.
