The children have been discussing and learning about Winter in nursery through a variety of different activities some rather messy!
We have had various visitors to nursery and the school and we would like to share this with you:
SSPCA- Discussed caring for pets including Rabbits. They provided some robotic Rabbits for us to use in our learning. We learned about what food, shelter and space that Rabbits needed to be happy.
Quality Meat Scotland- Jennifer came to school and lead a cooking demonstration in which some of us helped to make beef fajitas. They were really yummy! We discussed the different food groups and learned more about healthy eating. We participated in a picture game which we were to decide what goodness our bodies get from different meats.
Guide dogs- Clare and Liz brought along Tudor their 5 month old puppy and discussed with us the job that guide dogs do and how important they are. We learned that puppies go to school at the age of 1 and by 2 they are working supporting a visually impaired person. We also discussed the things needed to look after a puppy.
We also celebrated Burns day including, listening to Scottish muisc and stories and having our own Burns supper for snack.
