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.
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.
The children in the 2-5 room enjoyed a trip down to the machair to see the baling.
Thank you to the crofters on the Ormiclate and Bornish machair for letting the children see the process from cutting through to wrapping. They enjoyed it so much they wanted to go back for a third day!
We also went down on Wednesday, when the weather was less agreeable! The children still had a great time.
On our blog you can read about all the things we get up to in the nursery.
