Good morning- it’s grey but it’s dry and we are out in our lovely tidy garden. At the weekend a lovely group of parents and children came in and dug over all our vegetable beds, ready for planting beans and peas. It’s looking great and the nursery’s garlic patch is growing really well.
This is a really short week – the nursery will be closed on Thursday and Friday of this week and Monday 27th too. Thursday is an in-service and staff are having training on Makaton and working on self-evaluation of our practice.
Our Joint Active Learning Project with Primary 1 takes place again on Wednesday. This is our last session of our learning activities. Our last get together is next Wednesday where we have a big party to celebrate the end of our project with some party food and some fun and games.
Wednesday is also our Parent’s Evening – a chance to have a chat with your child’s keyworker. If at all possible, it would be helpful if you could come along to Parents’ Evening without your child. We do not have any creche facilities, or spare staff to supervise children while you talk.
Thanks to everyone who brought in a bottle for the bottle stall for the Spring Fayre. There is still time to bring one, if you forgot, as the Fayre is not till the 31st May.
Wednesday 5th June is our big Teddy Bear Fun Day – we are having a lovely bear-themed fun day with a boat launch in the middle. With the money our lovely parents raised from the Spring Tea Party, we have booked Aitken Drum, who is bringing his one man show – We’re Going on a Bear Hunt- to perform for us. He will be here at 9.30 and everyone is welcome to attend. If your child doesn’t normally come on a Wednesday morning, they are welcome, if you can come along too! At 11 o’clock we will be going over to our garden where we are going to celebrate the launch of the good ship Fin. Georgia, who suggested the name, will be launching Fin and we will be singing some boat related songs in her honour. You are then welcome to bring your lunch and stay and have a Teddy Bear’s picnic in our garden or orchard. We are really, really hoping for a lovely day. We’ll be having some lovely ice cream and teddy snack too and fizzy water to celebrate the launch of our boat.
Tuesday 4th and 11th June are our school induction days for our pre-schoolers going to Milngavie.
Our graduation for pre-schoolers is on Thursday 13th June at 11am in the Upper School Hall. Everyone is welcome!
