We hope you all had a relaxing October holiday and the changing of the clock hasn’t caused too much chaos at home! We would like to thank you for the fantastic turn out during stay and play week last term. It was really lovely to see everyone and we hoped you enjoyed the opportunity to come in and see what happens at nursery and have a look through your child’s special folder of work. We appreciated your comments too, it was helpful and interesting to read them.
The children have been talking about all things autumnal and there has been specific interest in the animals that go to sleep or hibernate over the winter. Some of the children have been involved in making a bed for a bear, hopefully he will manage to find a peaceful spot within the classroom to have a snooze. What happens to the leaves and trees has also been a point of conversation, we will continue to explore this avenue of learning within our floorbook.
This term is looking very busy already. Transition to primary one will start within the next few weeks. We also have a program of dancing booked in to take place over five afternoons and Bookbug are popping in one morning to do a session of singing and story-telling with us.
A wee reminder that there are certificates within the cloakroom for you to celebrate special moments at home, fill them in and we will put them up on our Wow wall. Honey Bear was excited to re-start her visiting after two week at school without cuddles. She will come to everyone in time and we love hearing about her adventures out and about.
From all the ELC staff
