Nursery Team update 03/04/20

Hi everyone,

It feels so long since we have seen you all.  I hope you’ve been finding lots of fun ways to keep busy.  Have you been helping around the house? Drawing? Or maybe playing some games?

I really miss seeing you all every day in nursery! I’m trying to keep busy too; I’ve done some baking and gardening but My favourite part of each day has been a morning walk with my family and our dog ‘Minnie’ – it’s nice to get some exercise and fresh air while the sun has been shining.  We have been enjoying spotting the lovely rainbows people have been putting in their windows. Have you seen any while youve been out for a walk? Or maybe you’ve made your own? We would love to see them! I know so many of you create lovely rainbows with paints and pencils at nursery.

It’s time for the Easter holidays and I know it maybe doesn’t feel like it at the moment but maybe you have some activities planned like an Easter egg hunt, some craft or some messy play? Gloop is nice and easy and so much fun (and easy to clean haha) this is a link to a recipe if you’d like to use it..

Remember and keep an eye on our nursery Facebook page where we are posting regular updates and ideas for home learning.  You can also send in any pictures or photos you’d like to share with us.

Nursery update 26/3/20

Good Morning Craigroyston Nursery families!

How is everyone? It feels a bit strange not being with you all at the moment. It will take us all time to adjust to this new way of learning and keeping in touch! We are almost at the end of our first week of home learning now and we are all very interested in what you have been up to!

Have you been helping to tidy up toys around the house? Have you been reading stories or listening to stories online? Have you managed to get some fresh air? Have you helped to look after a pet? Have you been doing exercise with The Body Coach in the morning? Have you been kind to someone in your family?

We have so many questions for you but most importantly – are you happy, safe and healthy? We hope everyone is keeping well.

If you have anything you would like to share with us – photos, drawings, videos… we would love to hear from you on our Facebook page. It’s important for us all to stay connected!

Playdough is also very popular at nursery and lots of fun. If you’re interested in the benefits of playdough please see the following link: https://parentingchaos.com/play-dough-developmental-benfits-early-childhood/

Keep up the great work – it’s almost the weekend! We are missing you all very much. Remember to keep washing those hands!!
