Nursery Zoo trip for Chinese Culture Week

The snow cleared and the sun came out and we had a brilliant day at the zoo!

We actually got to see the pandas – they were amazing!  We saw so many other animals too and really close up – look at our photos of the lions, tigers – ‘ROAR’.  Alden is our very brave new friend of the lion!  After a whole day out we were really, really tired (some of us fell asleep on the bus!!!!)  but we had some great memories to take home with us!

Nursery Water of Leith Trip

Some more of our nursery children visited the water of Leith centre this week.

We had a great trip, despite the rain!  We were mat by Sandie and Ruth who work at the Centre.  They told us a story about Ollie the otter who didn’t want to learn to swim and catch his own fish because he didn’t want to get cold in the river water!  Then we went for a walk along the Water of Leith riverbank and look for the different places that animals liked to life.  By then we were a bit cold and hungry so we came inside and di some lovely art work and had snack too.  Thank you to all the parents who came with us.  We hope you all enjoyed it!

Free Parenting Support Sessions

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.
