We have been thinking of all our little ones starting P1...and our big ones returning to school after a very long break! πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸ«πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ«

Hopefully you all transition into school life and the new changes that are in place with ease.

Big and little changes can be difficult, but we hope you enjoy your new learning adventure. πŸ“– πŸ–Š πŸ“ πŸŽ’

During our deep clean, before reopening the nursery, we discovered that some big visitors (πŸ•·πŸ˜±) had taken over our Discovery Garden!!!

What a perfect opportunity to build a bug hotel! The after schoolers just love digging and searching for different insects, and finding out some info on them. Sometimes there’s a few screams when we come across bugs unexpectedly! πŸπŸ›πŸ¦‹πŸŒπŸžπŸœπŸ¦ŸπŸ¦—πŸ•·πŸ•Έ

We’ve been extra quiet recently, but we are finally glad to announce that we are now open! πŸ€—β€οΈ 🌈

The staff have been working very hard preparing for the β€˜new norm’ and setting up the nursery for everyone starting back.

To mark the occasion, one of our children had a great idea of cutting ribbon for our β€œgrand opening.” πŸŽ€ βœ‚οΈ Cassie the cat also appeared for our celebrations! 🐈

We are so excited to see all of the little faces that we have missed so much the past few months and also to make lots more memories together. 🌈β™₯️

Spring time is one of our favourite seasons. πŸŒ€πŸŒ±πŸŒΌπŸΈπŸ›πŸ¦‹πŸ

After what seems like a long, dark winter, we get to spend more time outdoors in the lovely weather.

During our time outside, we get to explore nature all around us - plants starting to grow, tiny lambs being born, many insects crawling and flying about and sometimes we are lucky enough to observe the lifecycle of frogs and butterflies!

We haven’t spotted any frogs in our makeshift pond yet, but look at how big the lambs are getting! ❀️ πŸ‘

Agree with Emma Mcanespie we miss Rainbow and its wonderful people 😊🌈 Hope everyone is safe and well X

Miss you all 😘😘😘

At the beginning of March we planted some vegetable seeds in the pre-school room. 🌱πŸ₯•

First we added water to the soil tablet. We observed how the tablet absorbed all of the water in the dish. Then we noticed something...the tablet was starting to grow taller! We kept topping up the water in the dish once it had all disappeared, which made the soil tablet grow even taller! The soil went all crumbly and when we compared it to the dry soil tablet, it looked completely different!

Once we had finished observing and discussing the changes, we added some soil to a pot and planted the very tiny seeds.

We had to feel the soil in the pots every morning to check if they needed watered. If the soil was dry then they needed a drink. If the soil was wet, then they weren’t ready for a drink yet.

Unfortunately the children didn’t get to see any changes in the growth of the seeds. Maybe you could let them see the pictures of them starting to grow. 🌱πŸ₯•
