The focus of this lesson was cracking different types of code. The class started with semaphore before learning about Caesar ciphers and pigpen ciphers.


Supporting Your EAL Child (English as an Additional Language) Session.

Mrs Samina Mustaq, our EAL teacher, met with parents whose children have English as an additional language.

She provide advice and answered the questions parents had about how they could support their child’s English and home language development during their time at nursery and at home.

Afterwards some of our feedback from the parents was:

‘A wonderful session for all other language parents’

‘The EAL Session was very helpful and encouraging’

‘The EAL session was really helpful – solved some of the questions we had’.

Nursery Visit to Toy Library

We had a lovely morning at the Gorgie/Dalry Toy Library. We found out how to join the Library which has over 240 toys for families to borrow and the children had a great time playing with some of the toys.

The Toy Library is in St. Martin’s, Dalry Road, just along from the school.  It is open every Monday between 10am – 11.30am. There is also a parent and toddler group at St Martin’s at the same time.  Everyone is welcome!
