Nursery Big Sing

BIG SING END OF YEAR CELEBRATION

 

We all enjoyed taking part in a ‘Big Sing’. We went to the school hall and Mrs Ewen played the piano. We sang nursery rhymes and songs we learned in the nursery and at home as part of our Sponsored Rhyme. We hope you enjoy the photos.

Thank you to all of you for coming and to those children, friends and family who raised over £100 for the nursery!!!  We are going to think about something to buy, possibly a music ‘boom box’ that we can use inside and outside when we want to sing and dance.

Nursery Reading Rainbows

READING RAINBOWS LIBRARY TRIP

All our pre-school children were invite to attend a special session at Fountainbridge Library on either 29th May or 31st May where they all received a Reading Rainbows bag. The bags, which contain two books, a white board, pens, and parent postcards. Reading Rainbows aims to spark a love of reading among pre-schoolers, giving them the best start when they begin school. The project is also designed to support parents and carers to share books and stories with their children, encouraging them to think about the tales together and to visit libraries more often.  At Dalry Nursery Class the Reading Rainbows books also become the focus for many of our transition activities, including visits to the library, classroom activities and our  ‘Moving Up Day’ on the 11th June for those children who are starting Primary 1 at Dalry in August.  These activities help to support our pre-school children prepare for their move to Primary 1 in August.

THIS YEAR’S TRANSITION BOOK IS ‘DEAR DINOSAUR’

Reading Rainbows are supported by City of Edinburgh Council’s Library and Information Service and Children and Families Service.

Nursery Museum Explorers

A GREAT DAY OUT TO THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF SCOTLAND

All our pre-schoolers recently received a free Reading Rainbows book bag thanks to the City of Edinburgh Council.  One of the books was ‘Dear Dinosaur’ and this has been the focus of the nursery’s learning as we build up toward our transition ‘Moving Up Day’ on Tuesday 12th June.

This week we all visited the National Museum of Scotland to see their very own T-Rex and had a great day out including a picnic lunch in the Meadows Park and a visit to their playground.  The weather was just so glorious that all treated ourselves to an ice-lolly!  Some of us were so tired after our fun packed day that we fell asleep on the bus!

A ‘BIG’ Thank You to all the family members that came with us on these trips.  We hope you enjoy our photos.
