Stay and Play – Term 3

Thanks to all our parents and siblings who came to our Stay and Play day and helped us prepare for SMUHA.  We had a fab morning and everyone was just so busy.  Your shield biscuits looked and tasted amazing.

It was great to catch up with parents and for you to have the opportunity to see your child’s learning.

The biscuits looked amazing.  I wonder who decorated the best shield biscuit?

The galley was amazing and enjoyed by all!

Valentine’s and Outdoor play

We love role play in Nursery and like to pretend we are Elsa and Anna from Frozen, who can freeze things.  We froze hearts and explored different ways to melt or break them to find what was inside…..

………Some of us preferred using warm water in syringes and droppers to melt holes in the hearts.

….some of us preferred using tools to break the ice instead

But when the ice melted – it was even more fun!……

 

….floating petals to make patterns

 

 

 

 

 

….sucking and squirting water with syringes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…..making perfume and love potions

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Squirting water made everything wet inside, so there was nothing for it but to go outside for a WATER FIGHT!  Which was EVEN MORE FUN!……

It was a good job we had waterproofs on.  We  drew pictures with the water – it was hard to control it sometimes.  We did lots of target practice and the bairns drew their own targets to practice on when we were all too wet.  Some bairns squirted water to wash the windows.  Mrs Bishop said we could wash her car if we wanted…….SO WE DID……………….

We must have done a good job as Mrs Bishop sent us a Thank You card for all our hard work!

Busy Bees

Wow, we can’t believe we’re half way through this Term already! Here’s a snap shot of some of the fun we’ve had with learning so far this Term…….

…….Letters, sounds, Bookbug, baking and messy play…

…..sand pit and mark making…..Drewie and Callum wrote a Wishlist of Bruder toys and posted it.  Much to their excitement a reply came in the post with some goodies!

…..Outdoor play and hall time.  Bringing our learning outside.  Building galley’s, viking torches, puddle splashing and recycling…..

…..Celebrating Chinese New Year, and Robert Burns.  We made tartan, thistles and had our own Chinese Great Race!…..

….Roleplay, snack shopping and sharing Learning Journals kept us busy and of course, DA OORICKS!  Indie shared her learning from a new Nursery with us, all about the Ooricks.  We read the story and Indie told us how to make an Oorick.  Everyone loved it, made Ooricks then went to the forest to look for Ooricks.  We found lots of clues that they had been there; hats, beds, homes, look-outs, their own garden and much much more!

 

Christmas Party Fun Stay and Play

We had a fabulous Christmas Party on Wednesday shared with parents.  It was a magical morning spent with Santa who arrived in a Fire Engine because there was nowhere to land his sleigh!

Big thanks to the Sumburgh Local Authority Fire Brigade for rescuing Santa from a field and bring him to our party and big thanks to Santa for travelling so far to come and visit us.  The bairns thoroughly enjoyed chatting with Santa and finding out all about his reindeers and elves.

We loved playing all the party games……

 

 

 

 

 

 

….but the highlight was definitely our Gingerbread House building competition!  Great to have so many parents and family involved and who better to judge the winner for best Gingerbread House, than SANTA himself!

 

 

 

Just look at the amazing creations that were made by everyone…all the bairns did a fab job and good to see some healthy competitiveness from the parents!

Hoooray to Santa’s winners…Sophie, Bronagh, Isla, Callum and Willum!

Snack time to recharge our energy…

Thank you for coming everyone and making it a special day for all.

More Advent Calendar Fun….

What a wonderful time we have had celebrating the countdown to Christmas with the bairns.  Each child had enjoyed having their own specially tailored activity to share with their friends.

We have continued our fun with…..
