The trip to Lochboisdale marina was based around the story 'Na Deich Spùinnich Bheaga'. The children had an amazing experience learning about different aspects of the marina. We eventually found some treasure, but didn't manage to spot any pirates on this occasion.
We were learning about what happens to trees during the autumn. We learned that the leaves change colour and fall off the trees.
The children followed a colour by numbers chart for their autumn pictures. They had to really concentrate and remember to follow the colour guide. Didn't they do well?
The staff at Cothrom Òg would like to thank everyone who attended our fundraising disco on Friday 28th September. We raised a massive £220 which will go towards the children's Christmas party. Watch this space for the date of the next one!!
The children are practicing for the disco tonight. Check out their moves!
Today we took advantage of a sunny spell and went out in the garden to learn about compost with Sue. We put old kale leaves and other debris in a wheelbarrow and put it all in a pile that will be taken down to Falachan Cothrom to be composted and turned into soil.
We then got to eat some tasty raspberries and tomatoes!
Last week we made little boats out of milk bottle caps in ReStore. We made masts out of pipe cleaner and sails out of felt. We glued it all together and decorated with some pretty rhinestones. We then tested them out in the nursery, and they float!
To celebrate Recycling Week the children made aprons from excess material in ReStore with Maria. Later on in the week they wore the aprons whilst participating in some roleplay in their 'cafe'.
On our blog you can read about all the things we get up to in the nursery.
