Nursery – 15/16
On Wednesday the Nursery joined Primary 1/2 for our last transition project event. We celebrated with a castle banquet. We started with some dancing followed by our buffet banquet and our song There Was A Princess Long Ago which we acted out in the Lilac room. This is what we thought of the day –
“I really liked it, it was fun. The best bit was the dancing.” Daniel McRoberts
“I liked the food we had to eat.” Layla
“I liked the popcorn.” Abbie
“I liked the dancing and the music.” Lennox
“I liked the drinks and the food.” Erin
Afternoon Nursery joined the rest of the school for some Eco activities. We talked about what we thought Eco meant and this is what we said –
“Eco means to look after the flowers and seeds.” Lennox
“It means to pick up the litter, litter is bad.” Lucy
“Eco is looking after our planet.” Callum
“We should make sure we have forests.” Nathan
“We need to look after all the petals of the flowers so they don’t fall off.” Layla
“We look after animals.” Abbie
“I look after my toys, if they get broken we recycle them.” Zara
We looked at the Eco flag made by the rest of the school and said we could see a tree in it and plants and a person with their arms out. We thought the green colour was the grass and plants and the blue colour was water.
We made transient pictures with natural items we found in the garden. We chalked a frame round our picture and then showed it to the other boys and girls.
Charley- ‘It was good to have my mummy to help.’
Callan – ‘I loved the mince and tatties.’
Evie – ‘Yummy Pizza, and I managed my tray.’
Billy – ‘It was tasty.’
Kyle – ‘Cool Pizza.’
Today we had an Eco assembly to let everyone in the school know what the Eco Crew have been up to.We also showed pictures from the wild life camera and let people know what is going to happen during Eco Day.They interviewed the nursery children and they explained what they have been doing for Eco.
- ‘I felt nervous about the assembly but after I felt happy because we did really well.’
- ‘I liked seeing the photos of the animals.’
- ‘I liked that the Eco Crew interviewed nursery because I think it’s a good idea for nursery to do the eco.’
Katy the Ranger presented a talk about Endangered Species in the afternoon. We learned lots of interesting facts.
Here is what some of us learned:
- ‘I learned lots about animals and how they could become extinct. Now I know more about what’s happening to them.’
- ‘Now I know about their habitats and where they live. I found out that the red squirrels normally live in Pine Cone Trees and the Pine Martins only go for the grey squirrels.’
- ‘I know a bit more how they are struggling to live and how they suffer.’
- ‘It was good learning about different animals. I felt sad that the elephants were endangered.’
- ‘Now I kind of know if I see one of the animals are in danger I will help them. I feel sad about all of the ones in danger.’
