Information on the latest events within our Early Years classes will appear here.
Take a look at what we have been getting up to this term…
We have been busy working in partnership with parents/carers to enhance our learning. Together we have participated in a ‘Bookbug’ session, visit to Bourtreehill library and a ‘Christmas Stay and Play’ session.
We have been learning about Scottish culture and have participated in a variety of activities including scottish dancing, tartan printing, learning scots words and reciting scottish poems and songs. We held our annual Burns Supper on Friday 27th January and the children had the opportunity to sample some traditional scottish fayre including haggis, neeps and tatties.
We have been putting our ‘Junkyard Garden’ to good use during outdoor learning. Using our design, problem solving and team work skills to produce imaginative creations with recycled materials.
On Tuesday 7th February we welcomed ‘The MacDougalls’ to the Early
Years class. We were entertained by their ‘Silly Singalong’ pop up show and had fantastic fun joining in with the songs and actions.
Thank you very much to the Parent Council who funded the cost of the show, we thoroughly enjoyed it!
We have been using a wide range of equipment during our gymnastic lessons with Mrs Mackenzie.
We are developing our maths skills by identifying numerals and using 1:1 correspondence techniques to match the number with the identified quantity.
We have been experimenting with different mark making materials to develop our early writing skills. We have been using a range of resources to produce patterns, images and letters.
We had a fantastic time on our trip to Eglinton Park despite the rainy weather. We explored the woods, found a variety of mini beasts, climbed the castle ruins, had a stick race and of course had lots of fun at the play park!
We have been very busy transforming our outdoor learning environment. Here are some photographs of some of our volunteers hard at work. Watch this space to see the final outcome…… A big thank you to everyone who has given up their time to contribute to the project!
