Bookbug at Glenwood

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!

World Book Day 2021

This year we couldn’t invite parents in to nursery to read stories so we invited them to read to us remotely! Some were able to join us live for a Google Meet and some shared videos of themselves reading with us. A huge “Thank you!” to all our storytellers.

Zachary’s mum read a story about dinosaurs.
Sorley’s grandad read a story about pirates.
We heard a Supertato story from Sam’s mum.
…and a Kipper story with a very bright torch.
Luke’s mum told us the story of The Tiger Who Came to Tea – which was written before Mrs Husbands was born!
Evie’s mum read another of our favourite stories Whatever Next
There was a tired unicorn in Lacey’s mum’s story.
Everyone joined in shouting “There’s a shark in the park!” with Alistair’s dad.
Mrs Brown used puppets to tell the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

All the children will receive a World Book Day voucher to spend – find out more in this fun song… how many stories to you recognise?

Sharing books and stories together is a valuable learning experience for your child. This document gives some advice on ways to get the most out of reading together.

Hide, Find and Rehide

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)
  • Paint/Pens/crayons
