The children in the Baby Room came in to the nursery in their best costumes for our Halloween party. They explored our spooky sensory play: bugs in spaghetti, spiders and snakes in jelly, and also got to investigate the inside of a pumpkin. They even got a few wee treats!

The children are exploring numbers, and beginning to understand that they represent quantities whilst playing this Incy Wincy game.
The children in the baby room have been working hard this term learning about the Three Little Pigs. As you can see, the children had great fun throughout this topic, making their own houses, getting messy, and baking delicious pig biscuits.
'I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house down!'
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!
On our blog you can read about all the things we get up to in the nursery.
