Nursery Diary

Friday 18th – Thursday 25th January

Our traditional tales have been very popular! This will continue to be our literacy focus, alongside some Scots language stories as we celebrate Robert Burns’ birthday on Thursday.
Our maths focus will continue to be on sorting. We will be exploring a range of shapes and objects that we can collect, sort and be creative with. This is an important stage in understanding shape.
In Health and Wellbeing, we will be thinking about friendship, caring, sharing, fairness and equality our new friends settle in to nursery. We will do this through discussion as we play.
Our Social Studies focus continue to be on making choices in our play. We will be supporting each other in choosing where we work, how we work and who we work with across the nursery. This is important for encouraging independent working and thinking, as well as developing social skills and enquiry learning.
To celebrate Robert Burns’ birthday on Thursday, we will be eating traditional Scottish foods, reading some stories and poems in Scots, singing some Scottish songs and dressing up in tartan.
*Maintenance work on our ceilings is ongoing for the time being. Thank you for your continued support and understanding and please continue to bear with us!

Nursery Diary

Friday 12th – Thursday 18th January

In literacy this week we will be reading traditional and favourite tales. We have chosen this focus as we have noticed lots of children choosing to dress up in robes and make crowns, as well as showing an interest in reading traditional tales. The children will be encouraged to re-enact these stories in their play, using props and taking on the roles of the characters.

P2 Tricky Words

We are trying very hard to learn to read and write our tricky words.

They are tricky  because

  • there are sounds that you hear but you don’t use to spell them
  • there are sounds you can’t hear but that you have to remember to write down

These are the new tricky words we are learning this term:

eight, learn, money, people, four, again, write, great, move, school, before, because, story, does, done

Here is a list of the all tricky words we have learned since primary 1. We are trying hard to spell these words correctly when we are writing stories.

Remember Santa is always particularly impressed if you spell these words correctly in your letters.
