Nursery News October 2018

What we have been up to

The children have enjoyed looking at both fiction and non-fiction books that helped to teach them about different modes of transportation for our topic “Transport. The children also enjoyed making graphs to show the different ways that they travel to and from Nursery, as well as talking a lot about road safety.

We have also been talking about the changes we can see in Autumn; the Rabbits and Foxes have had such a great time using the natural resources to make beautiful pictures for our display.

Our next topic is Multicultralism and we will update everyone on this in due course.

Extra Curricular Experiences

The local care home has recently been finding it difficult to accommodate our visits and we have therefore decided to take a break from these.  We hope to resume our relationship in the new year and will keep you posted.

We are very pleased to say that we have now restarted our Enjoy-A-Ball sessions for our over 3s. The children really enjoy having some energetic time outside to practice their ball skills.

We are also still enjoying Tatty Bumpkin sessions, as well as all the wonderful places that we have the opportunity to take the children to around Edinburgh.

The Foxes and Rabbits also recently had Zoo Lab come along for a Halloween themed session. The children listened very intently as they followed a magical story and met a snake, toad, millipede, snail and tarantula!

Staffing

We are pleased to welcome Desi Brown who has recently joined us as break cover.

Unfortunately, we are sadly saying goodbye to Caitlin in November. Caitlin has been with Meadows since 2016 and has decided to move on to pastures new and we wish her the best of luck in her new adventures.

Parents

A huge thank you to all the parents whom attended our Halloween Parties. This was such great fun and I’m sure you’ll agree that all the children had such a wonderful time and looked amazing in their costumes!
