We’d like to take the opportunity to remind parents to send kids in weather appropriate clothing where possible during the snow.
We encourage the children to play outside when the snow is sitting or light and would recommend boots, gloves, hats and coats to help avoid wet feet and cold hands and where possible waterproof trousers.
Week beginning: 22 January
What we are learning about:
Burns Night and Scottish Dance, Foods and Words
Recording What We Have Learned & What We Would Like to Learn
Our Story: Hairy Maclarey (see it on YouTube)
The nursery visited theWater of Leith Visitor Centre on Monday to learn about the effects of winter weather on the natural surroundings.
We met Sandie and Ruth who work there and they took us on walks along the Water of Leith and we also did some creative collages inside inspired by our visit.
Our new Be relilient Unit is called “Respect Yourself”
Here is the leaflet that is going out at hometimes.
Some children are laid-back and easy-going; others are hot tempered and strong-willed. These children can find themselves having difficulties in school and making good progress there. Parents can find themselves stressed out and at their wits’ end.
Help is at hand!
All over Scotland, parents and carers who have been finding the behaviour of their 3 to 6 year olds difficult have now started going along to Triple P and The Incredible Years Groups.
Full details of upcoming sessions in our area are available here.
The SCCR (Scottish Centre for Conflict Resolution) is offering 2 part free training session for parents and carers on Tuesday 23rd and 30th of January.
