This month the children in the Top room will be exploring all the different shapes we have. They will continue with the topic ‘All about me’ and will also be learning about the different parts of their bodies. They will have lots of fun with den building, mini beast hunt and identifying different leaves. The Pussy Cat room will be talking about changes in the seasons, and what we need to wear to keep ourselves warm and dry going from the warm to colder months. There will be lots of craft activities based around Autumn. The Bouncing Bunnies will also be learning about Autumn. They will be making an Autumn leaf collage, salt dough hedgehogs and hedgehog handprints using Autumn colours. The children will be helping to make harvest soup.
This is still a challenging time and Covid continues to be forever impacting on our day to day lives. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your patience and understanding as we try to keep the nursery safe for everyone.
Please remember to wear a face covering at drop off and pick up times and if you could please be aware of any symptoms relating to Covid that your child may have and we would recommend a PCR test or keep them at home until they are clear of any symptoms before returning to nursery.
We will be spending lots of time outside, so we ask that you provide suitable clothing and footwear for your children.
With our ever changing Scottish weather we are likely to be wearing wellies and waterproofs over the coming months. Please ensure your child is ready for cold and wet play. It may also be a good idea to ensure a complete change of clothes are in their bag.
Sun cream and a sun hat, labelled with your child's name, is essential for sunny days, children without these may miss out on playing outside!
We want all of our children to join in the fun activities no matter what our Scottish weather brings!
