Kirkhill Primary School

w/c 14th September 2020

Hello to Everyone!

We hope you had a lovely long weekend and a happy half week at Nursery.

This week we continued our learning about trains.  The children were interested to know about who works on a train and how do the trains change track.  So we had some discussion and fun, role playing on our imaginary train.

We talked about the points in the track, signals and the signal box.

As adults we had to remember lots of the children had never been on a train, so much of the role play they had just picked up from our chats, stories and information on the interactive smartboard.

As always, lots of outdoor learning through play, with water, mud and sand.

Here are just a few photos to give you an idea of what we have been up to this week.

Happy Weekend.

Nursery Team.

W/C 07.09.20 Trains

Good afternoon.

The children have shown an interest in trains after visiting the railway bridge, located behind the farm road in Kirkhill.

We’ve been learning new words linked to trains and railways, learning their meanings.  Role playing trains with tickets, linking into a long train to music.

Using literacy, numeracy and safety all relating to trains and railways.

We will continue to learn more on this topic for the coming weeks ahead.

hope you have a lovely weekend.

Sorry for it being so disjointed.

What we have been learning in Nursery this week. (w.c. 24/8/20)

Hi All!

I have taken some lovely photos of what we have been getting up to in Nursery, however, due to IT challenges, I am unable to upload them for now!  I will keep trying in the hope I can get them to you by the weekend.

We have been learning about butterflies, their life cycle and their symmetrical wings!  Children have been doing some symmetrical butterfly paintings and enjoying the life cycle jigsaws.

We have had the train set out this week and children have made some great layouts!  Lots of co-operative play and sound effects.

We have managed to get outside all week and put up a shelter and our home made kitchen within in.  Pots, pans, mud pies and cakes all made expertly on the mud kitchen cooker.  The sand pit has played host to much cake making too.

Children are settling in well at lunchtime, chatting and enjoying each others company and having a good look at what each other have in their lunch box!  Like we all do!

So all is jogging along nicely.  One day we can have you all in for a proper nose, but until then, please keep the communication going between yourselves and the Nursery Team and hopefully, when they come, our photos will also help you to develop a picture of what goes on in our Nursery.

Thank you for your support and help.

Nursery Team.
