First Week Back

What a happy first week of our new session at Busby Early Learning and Childcare Centre.

It was so lovely to meet all of our new pupils and families and to see our returners back for another year.

Many thanks to all families for helping us settle in the children to their new nursery routines and to our new staff who have joined our team so enthusiastically.

Here’s to an exciting year ahead.

**Outdoor Opportunities**

We went to Pollok Park for our Summer trip this year. On our journey we visited Fairyland,  climbed big hills, explored the wild woods, identified dinosaur bones and found various vegetables growing in the gardens.  It was exciting to spot newts, tadpoles and dragonflies at the pond!

We have also been making the most of the good weather exploring and discovering in our playground and in the church garden.

“It feels all spiky…”   “It’s a monkey puzzle.”

**Digital Learning**

Primary 6 have been sharing their learning with the Nursery.

Together we used Sphero Mini which is a robot that connects to an app on the ipad and walkie talkies.We had to communicate instructions to each other to find the hidden object.

~~Rhyme of the Week~~

Pollok Park has been voted for our Nursery trip. We decided our rhyme of the week should be The Wheels on the Bus, as we will be travelling on a bus.

The wheels on the bus go round and round,

round and round,

round and round,

the wheels on the bus go round and round, all day long.



~~Rhyme of the Week~~

We have been noticing daffodils all around, in gardens, parks and at the side of the road.  So we decided our song should be…

Ten Little Daffodils

One little, two little, three little daffodils,

four little, five little, six little daffodils,

seven little, eight little, nine little daffodils…

Ten little daffodils grow in a row.

Grow, grow, grow those daffodils (times 3)

Ten little daffodils grow in a row.



As STEM WEEK gets going, we have been thinking and learning all about our eyes, their shape and how we use them. We made our own eyeballs…

“Eyes are for looking.”

“That’s the pupil.”    “It’s a hole”

If it’s too sunny… “I put my hand above my eye like this.”
“I put my hands over my eyes.”
“You can wear sunglasses.”

“If you’re cooking something with onions, your eyes cry.”

“People who can’t see have to feel.”
