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.

All this week the toddlers have been celebrating Halloween . We have had lots of sensory fun experiencing a variety of new textures. Today we have dressed up, sang songs, dooked for apples and had a special Halloween snack time.
Today at Cart Mill the children celebrated Diwali with beautiful henna tattoos, homemade pakora, rangoli pictures , we also made our own music with our drums and enjoyed dancing.
What a fantastic time our families had at the Let’s Play workshops this week. The Let’s Play programme aims to empower families in their play, discussing the power of our attachments, interactions and outdoor experiences. After all play is the highest form of learning for all ages.
