Grandparents’/Special Person Day in Nursery

This week we have been sharing our learning in nursery with some very special people. Our children had the opportunity to invite a grandparent or a special person to nursery and explore the activities available to our children. Everyone was very excited and seemed to enjoy both sessions. Over both days we had over 100 visitors and have been delighted with the very positive feedback received.

Our special visitors have commented that the children  have been learning – how to make soup with sticks and mud, how to share, ball skills in the outdoor area, co-operation and how to be creative.

Some of the comments from our visitors has stated – “we loved the songs, the children were all involved”, “what an exciting nursery, I wish I could have stayed longer” and “keep up the great work.”

All the staff and children at Bonnytoun Nursery would like to thank everyone who attended.

Lambs visit nursery again!

Our afternoon children and children attending on a Monday also had the opportunity to see some lambs. Well done to Charlie in P6 who came down from school and shared his knowledge about his lambs. Some of our boys and girls even had the opportunity to feed the lambs from a bottle.

Bonnytoun Nursery

Over the last few weeks, we’ve had great excitement in nursery.

At the beginning of December we had the opportunity to view a performance by Mousetale Puppets. The children really enjoyed this and had the opportunity to touch the puppets afterwards and find out how they were made.

Our children also had great fun at our nursery parties and were so excited when Santa arrived to deliver presents.

This week we have been so proud of all our confident children  who have performed brilliantly during our six Christmas Singalongs.

Springfield Primary School’s Christmas Church Service 2015

We are so proud of our pupils and staff as they led us into a celebration at this very special time of year. Pupils from all classes are taking part in our Church Service at St. Michael’s in Linlithgow. We have a host of talent from singing, drama and music. Pupils from P1 are taking part in the Nativity scene whilst pupils from P2 – P7 are sharing readings from ‘Twas the Night of Jesus’s Birth’.

Musical talents are shared including a whole orchestra of instruments including: brass, recorders, flutes, strings, choir, ukeleles, Music Buds and of course the choir singing. We are so proud of our pupils and staff at Springfield Primary and Bonnytoun Nursery and sincerely hope everyone enjoys this very special service.

We would like to thank everyone for their help and support making this happen.
