Goodbye Chicks.

Friday, March 9th, 2018

Today we said goodbye to our little chicks.  We have loved watching them grow (even though we sadly missed them hatching due to the severe weather).

We had a lucky draw this morning and randomly selected names.  Thank you for all your suggestions.

We are an Eco School

Friday, February 10th, 2017

As you may already be aware Bathgate Early Years Centre is an Eco School.  Children and Mrs Ola and Miss Heenan have been working extremely hard to develop our Eco area and bird hide in nursery.

This month we are learning about;

  • the importance of saving water and how we can do this in nursery by recycling rainwater and left over water from snack to water our plants.
  • growing plants and beans from seed and observing and measuring the stages of growth and what we need to do to enable them to grow.
  • caring for our garden birds and beginning to identify them by sight and sound.  Have you heard all about the big giant pigeon that visits our garden and eats up all the bird food?  Sometimes we are visited by a grey squirrel too!

We also had a special visit from a landscape gardener this week.  Miss Robertson’s brother Jamie helped us learn all about his job and what we can do at nursery to grow and care for our plants.  He brought along lots of tools and explained what he uses them for at work.  He kindly donated sunflower seeds, pots and compost to enable us to grow lovely yellow sunflowers we can plant in our garden when it is summer time and a bit warmer outside.  Thank you very much Miss Robertson and Jamie!

Please come in and have a look in nursery and on our Eco Schools news board to find out more.

We would like to share our learning near and far and encourage readers to come to our blog. Please don’t share pictures and videos from our blog but instead share a link to our blog and bring your friends and family to us.
