Please think!

We are offering a service to frontline parents for their children this week from Netherlee Nursery. It is important to think before you bring your child/children to us – can you or a partner stay at home to look after the children?

We are classed as an emergency service during these unprecedented times so we are prioritising NHS staff , Emergency Services and Education Staff.  Please only use us if you have no other option and need to go to work in the above mentioned services.

The clear message from the government is “stay at home”. Please take at this helpful flowchart chart.

 

Self Isolating.. Stay safe!

Day 6 of working from home for me, keeping busy and keeping up to date with work! Most importantly staying safe and staying healthy.

In the midst of all the uncertainty it is important that we are all still getting fresh air and keeping a clear head where possible. I have been going on ‘social distancing’ walks with my dog Lola to allow a break in between working.

Looking forward to being back with the Cart Mill team and children soon, stay safe everyone!

Bye Bye!

Dear Parents/Carers

I would like to say a huge thank you to you for all the support and kindness you have shown our staff in these unprecedented times.
Cart Mill is closing tonight and it is with much sadness that we move to our hub school, Netherlee Primary and Nursery Class.  We will be providing a service to the children of frontline workers and we stand together as the Cart Mill Family supporting our families who are doing a fantastic job.
You will be able to contact us via schoolmail@cartmill.e-renfrew.sch.uk and we will be posting on our blog and twitter to help you keep your children learning and playing at home.  I am really hoping that we can have our annual ‘Tie Giving Ceremony’ at some point but we will need to wait and see.
I hope that you and your family stay safe in the coming days and weeks and I hope to see you all again in the not too distant future.
Kindest wishes

Button’s BIG Adventure

Our World Book Month celebrations continued today when one of our parents Lizzie Finnigan came in to share her new story Button’s BIG Adventure with  the children.

Button’s BIG Adventure tells the story of a button who gets lost when he falls off a little girl’s jacket and meets lots of different characters along the way in his journey to be found!

Our adventure with Button began when Lizzie realised one of her three lovely yellow buttons was missing from her cardigan!

We all began to look for Lizzie’s yellow button around the nursery. We had to look high and look low!
Luckily we finally found her button hiding in the kitchen! We were ready to start our story.

Lizzie read us the story of Button’s BIG Adventure, introducing us to all the different characters that Button met along the way.

Some of the characters were a boy with a kite, a Granny with a dog and a mermaid!

After she had finished reading the story, we shared some of our favourite parts of the story with Lizzie. She told us her favourite part was when the button twirled and whirled round and round and she even taught us the dance she had made up ! We had a great time whirling and twirling up and down and round and round just like the Button!

Thank you so much to Lizzie for visiting us and sharing her wonderful story with us. We had an awesome time!

World Book Week

We are looking forward to seeing the potatoes you have created this week so please bring them in and tell us all about their story.

We would like volunteers to come in and read a story to our children during this week – grandparents, aunties and uncles can come in too!

Please make sure that you take some slips home to record the stories that you are reading your children.  We have a target of 1000 stories and we need you to help.
