Transition to School 2020

WEEK 1

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.

Pancake Tuesday!

Today the toddlers were celebrating Pancake Tuesday! They were all very involved in helping to make our egg free pancakes! After hand washing the children helped to weigh and mix the ingredients in a bowl. They all had a turn at stirring the mixture. We then all went to the family room to see the mixture turn into pancakes. The children beautifully sang ‘Pop a Little Pancake’ whilst waiting. The pancakes smelled yummy!! Once back in the playroom the children crushed strawberries to make jam and spread it on their own pancake. We had banana on top too! What a tasty snack! The toddlers gave a big thumbs up to eating fresh pancakes!

Big Fit Winter Family & Friends Walk 2019

We are busy getting our plans finalised for the Big Fit Winter Family & Friends Walk on Saturday 9th November.

We will meet in the car park from 8.45 and be ready to walk at 9am.  We will be walking to Busby Glen Park and then on into the the forest to the woodland walkway. This is the route we take to our Forest School site.

We will walk so far along the route and then return on a different path to the play park where there will be tea, coffee, water and something sweet waiting for us.  We aim to be back at Cart Mill by 11am.

Please come along and bring your family, friends and dogs too.  Everyone is welcome.
