What a soggy start to Wednesday, but for eight of our intrepid explorers it was wellingtons and jackets on ready to face the rain. Josh, Ava, Ben Gough, Ben Archibald, Finlay, Felix, Eilidh Dingwall and Leo undertook a mission to Stonelaw Woods to collect some sticks and branches. It was not a lengthy mission, the heavens opened as we left nursery and Mrs Brown and Mrs Black discovered they were not as waterproof as the children but we did manage to forage some brilliant sticks that we will use tomorrow (when they dry out) for writing activities.
Mrs Friel was very sensible and stayed in the relative dry of the nursery. She wanted to see how good the children were getting at signing their names. The girls and boys were eager to demonstrate their skill at putting pencils and pen to paper.
Mrs Black thought it would be good fun to see how much the children had learned over the past few weeks about their topic and at Get Together time we had a quiz all about our bodies. The boys and girls were very good at recalling the information they have been gathering and could tell the teachers all about X-rays, bones and how many blonde / brown haired children there are at nursery.
The children all enjoyed the snack Mrs Gallagher served up today. They had bread and butter with salami and apple all washed down with either milk or water.
Having dried out sufficiently, Mrs Black felt that a good book to read would be "I Wish That I Had Duck Feet" by the brilliant Dr Seuss. The children found this very funny and it will be out in nursery tomorrow for anyone who didn't hear the end of it.
Finally, an apology for the oaty children that left nursery today. The boys and girls have absolutely loved the porridge oats in the malleable area, it really has been brilliant to see the different ways they have used it to play and we cannot promise that we won't use it again but we will try to stop them putting it in their hair - Olivia Harris!!!
We will see you all tomorrow morning for some more Stonelaw fun.
