Expansion of Early Learning and Childcare

The Scottish Government now provides funding to allow three and four-year-old children to receive 600 hours of free early learning and childcare every year. That works out at around 16 hours every week over school term times.

From August 2015, some families with two-year-old children also qualify to receive the free early learning and childcare.

End Of Term Celebration Day

Good luck to all the children who are moving on to school after the summer holidays.  Everyone at Heathrigg would like to wish you all well for the future.  Remember to come back and visit us.

Thank you to all the parents, carers and other family members who came along to support the children.  It was so nice to see you all here.  We hope you enjoyed the barbeque too.

Story Den

tidy SAM_1367 SAM_1368SAM_1363We have been cleaning our house ready to make it in to a Story Den.  You can help us by recycling things you no longer want.   This is what the children would like for in their story den.

Planned Learning

Over the next few weeks the children will be:

  • exploring letters and different ways to mark make. 
  • exploring time, changing seasons, celebrations and how they links to their world
  • learning to make choices and share their experiences
  • performing a Christmas Nativity

They will be doing this through exploring St Andrews Day, Winter and Christmas.

The staff and children have some ideas about activities that would help support the children’s learning and interests such as:

  • making Scottish flags (a big one for outside was suggested by the children)
  • making Shortbread
  • Scottish music and dancing
  • making and writing Christmas cards, calendars and invitations
  • Christmas decoration
  • songs and stories
  • what to wear when playing outside
  • looking at the weather
  • games
  • what birds are in our garden

CAN YOU THINK OF ANY OTHER ACTIVITIES FOR US TO DO?  Please leave us a comment if you do and we will add this to our floorbook.
