We would like to send a big Tapadh Leibh to one of our Grandparents Anne-Marie Johnson for donating buggies for the babies to play with. They have had a lot of fun with them, and have enjoyed taking their dollies out for walks.
Once a baby's vision begins to develop, they love to look at faces. Mirrors help babies learn self-awareness. Our baby is playing peek-a-boo with himself.
What a perfect start to our 'People in the community' topic when the children got to observe the workers installing the new EV charging point outside Cothrom.
The children made ice cream to celebrate 'Ice cream for breakfast' day. They enjoyed the process of making the ice cream, and especially the end result, tasting it!
Water play has many benefits for young children including developing their gross motor skills, it encourages social skills like cooperation, sharing, spatial awareness and and it can be invigorating or relaxing and calming. The children certainly had an invigorating time during this session!
Since the children in the 2-5 room have been learning about winter, they went to the power station in Loch Carnan to see what effect the winter weather has on us.
They were shown a clip of what windy weather can do and the Personal Protective Equipment the staff have to wear and use when working. They took turns operating the crane and even found time to do some colouring in!
Thank you to the staff of SSE for taking the time to show our children around. They thoroughly enjoyed their day and were full of stories on their return to Cothrom.
Tha a' chlann ag ionnsachadh an dath buidhe.
The children in the 0-2 room are being introduced to the colour 'buidhe' in many different forms.
On our blog you can read about all the things we get up to in the nursery.
