Nursery News July 2016

Doodle Poll

We have recently set up a doodle poll for our next parent forum date & time. We would appreciate parent’s input to allow us to choose a date that allows more people to attend in future.

Balance Bike Project

We were delighted to receive 2 balance bikes from The Bike Station Edinburgh as part of their Balance Bike Project. The project aims to provide nurseries in Edinburgh with balance bikes to encourage more children to use bikes. We have had lots of fun riding our new bikes and have been setting up circuits to cycle round, as well as having lots of discussions about the benefits of cycling and exercise.

Handovers

We would like to respectfully ask parents to arrive at nursery by 5:50pm so that parents can receive a handover and allow staff to leave the nursery at 6pm.

Out & About

We have been spending time over at the Meadows park this month. The Rabbits, Foxes & older Hedgehogs have been having great fun climbing on the climbing frame and taking turns on the roundabout! Our younger Hedgehogs have been enjoying the swings as well as walks around the Meadows in the buggies.

We are looking forward to our next block of forest schools and care home visits as well as tennis starting up again after the holidays.

Children & Activities

We have had lots of water play this month to help cool us off on the hotter days! The Rabbits and Foxes have been using spray bottles with water to make patterns on the ground as well as brushes and water to mark-make in the garden!

We have also been learning about days of the week and seasons through our floor book planning and daily activities. We have been using our magnetic calendar at Together Time to discuss days, months, weather and seasons.

The Hedgehogs have been exploring ice & water this month, both indoors and in the garden. We have had lots of fun exploring the different shaped and coloured ice and loved to mix it around in the water and sand trays.

We are looking forward to the new term of Boogie Beat & Tatty Bumpkins starting after the holidays.

Staff

We will sadly be saying goodbye to Sam in August as she is heading off on maternity leave. We will all miss Sam lots, however, Sam will be returning next year along with her little one.

We will also be saying goodbye to Amy M who is leaving to work closer to home. Amy has worked at Meadows for 2 years and we would like to thank her for all her efforts over her time with us.

Staff CPD

All the staff will be attending a course on Curriculum for Excellence this month. We also had a visit from Kirsty Dobson from Edinburgh Council to discuss the Technologies area of the curriculum. We are looking forward to implementing lots of new ideas over the next few planning blocks.

Diary Dates

We will be holding a tea party on Friday 5 August from 2:30-4:30pm. Everyone is welcome!
