It was safe and warm inside though and the children enjoyed telling us their stories from last night about the storm. Naima told us she could hardly sleep because of the thunder and Ben Gough's tale of falling trees was very interesting. We also heard about bins being blown about and playhouses flying through the sky - Eilidh Walsh was glad it wasn't her playhouse.
We were very busy today with lots of different activities for the children to try. In the house corner Eliza, Zara and Jessica were washing the dolls clothes and hanging them out to dry. Mrs Black was impressed at how good they were with the clothes pegs.
Through in the small hall, Mrs Blaine had a terrific time playing a board game called "Bus Stop" with Felix, Finlay and Cody. The children counted out the number of spaces to correspond with their roll of the dice. Finlay kept getting to add his passengers but poor Felix had to take his away, it must be his driving!
Meanwhile back in the "front room" (Eilidh Walsh quote of the day), the children were sounding out the syllables in their name using drum beats. Mrs Brown found out that Olivia had four, Eliza had three, Louis and Logan had two and Ros and Josh only have one.
Mrs Gallagher was busy preparing a tasty mid morning snack of pitta bread, tzatziki, carrot sticks and cucumber. It looked delicious and made all the teachers feel quite peckish.
At Reflection Time we asked the boys and girls what they would be doing on Saturday and Sunday as Buddy Bear was looking for a home for the weekend. Having listened carefully Buddy decided that a potential trip to London with Leon sounded great but even if they didn't make it to London all the birthday parties Leon is attending sound fantastic. Have a brilliant time Leon and Buddy - don't eat too much cake.
Our "Good Sitting" award went to Ben Gough this week - congratulations Ben keep up the good work.
Finally it was lovely have Mack back with us - he told us he was feeling much better, but we are still missing our other nursery friends Otis, Melody, Aaron, Leo, Eilidh Dingwall, Ruari and Ben Archibald - Get Well Soon and we will see you back with us next week hopefully. Have a lovely weekend everybody.
