Healthy eating and new foods

This block we are going to be learning about healthy foods and tasting new and different foods too!

We serve a variety of fruit and vegetables at snack everyday.

If you have any ideas for snack please put them in our suggestion book in the cloakroom – thanks!

We have had lots of yummy things to try this term already….

The scottish pudding cranacan, homemade fruit skewers,different types of breadsticks and dips, Forsyths haggis pies, homemade vegetable skewers and pitta bread, quiche and coleslaw , and  homemade banana smoothie.


When we have a new food at snack time, we choose either or  green button to Put in the jar. Green if we liked it or a red if you didn’t like it.




Games Stay and Play

We had our first games stay and play in ELC today. Thank you to all the parents/carers that came in, we love sharing our learning with you!

We had different game stations which included twister, the snail race , pop to the shops, dominos and a bowling alley!


The children got to practice taking turns, working together, and communicating with different adults and children!



Outdoor area

Look at some of our new things in our outdoor area!


Mrs Harrison kindly donated some logs to our ELC and we have been busy making a new sand pit, and seating area.  Thank you Mrs and Mr Harrison.

Mr Harrison also cut some  “log slices” which we have been using for plates in our kitchen and for playdough.


Muddy Monday fun!

We have carried on our Outdoor learning this year with Muddy Mondays.

The children have been experiencing  the different types of cold weather!

In our Wood area in the school grounds we have been taking different types of mark making equipment and seeing what the children choose to do with it.


We have enjoyed having our story and snack outside too.


Please support us by ensuring your child is warmly and appropriately dressed for the weather!


Primary 1 Birdwatching

We had a busy morning on Friday as we worked with our P7 buddies to take part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. We wrapped up warm and enjoyed exploring different areas of the playground. In spite of the cold, we were able to see many different types of birds and we recorded our findings on a table. Then we headed inside to make bird seed feeders and shared some bird-themed stories with our P7 friends.
