We are very aware that our traditional transition programme will be greatly missed by children and parents alike this year. It is a special time for children to start thinking about school and the great adventure that lies ahead. We hope that you enjoy this transition programme based on the hugely popular book “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” by Michael Rosen.
The Moving On programme has been developed together with colleagues from Glenwood Family Centre, Our Lady of the Mission Primary School, Thornliebank Nursery and Primary School, Giffnock Nursery and Primary School and Braidbar Nursery and Primary School. This programme is appropriate for all of our pre-school children, even if they will be attending a primary school outwith the neighbourhood.
The Moving On programme reflects some of the experiences we would typically be doing in nursery this term. They are based on the story “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” by Michael Rosen which can be accessed online.
Each week until the end of term we will share an activity sheet by email and on our website which has some suggested activities. We encourage you and your child to engage in some of the activities throughout the week and keep a record of this learning however, as with all home learning activities please do what works for your family and in ways which interest your child.

It was a chilly morning in the garden today but the warm fire and a tasty mug of soup was just perfect.
Thank you to the parents and family members who took time to stay and play with us today. There is more play tomorrow at 9am and 3pm in the Discovery Room.
This week the children were so lucky that Santa had time to visit and bring them a special gift. We have a little sneak peak of Santa’s visit below. Ho Ho Ho and a Merry Christmas!
Today the toddlers joined the children in the 3-5 room for a special puppet show. The story was a take on the classic tale of Rapunzel. The children were all very animated watching the show and found certain parts very funny! The children showed great sitting and listening skills and they really enjoyed shouting out at the appropriate times.
The frog was a big hit with most of the children. Everyone enjoyed the show and some of our children were lucky enough to see it twice! We would like to thank Clydebuilt Puppet Theatre for two amazing performances.
It has been a wonderful day of crafting for our children and families. We love these days as they are relaxed, fun and festive. Thank you to everyone who came along and thank you to our staff team for organising the event.
