Here’s to 2017

What a wonderfully busy start we’ve had to the winter term. The children returned, excited to tell us about their winter celebrations at home, and we have welcomed some new children who have settled in so well to Lewis room.

The children have been exploring the winter season, both indoors and out. We’ve had lots of ice play in the water tray, and sliding, sledging and collecting ice outdoors.

We have continued to explore our local community, visiting the library and local landmarks. The children have noticed the signage and street names in the area, so we have been investigating what they say and mean.

This term we have been focusing on our bodies, and all the wonderful things they can do. We’ve been climbing, jumping, crawling and balancing as well as assessing personal risks at the gym. We danced and twirled at our ceilidh for Robert Burns day, and we have listened to our hearts at rest and at play.

As well as celebrating Burns, we have also had a fabulous Chinese New Year, with music, stories, dancing, parents cooking traditional Chinese food, and even a dragon!

Are you a great cook? Do you love singing? Do you play an instrument or can you sew or knit? Maybe you enjoy reading stories? If any parents, grandparents, carers or other relatives, are reading and have a special skill that the children might enjoy, please feel free to talk to us, as we would love to have you spend some time with us in Lewis Room. We know you are a talented bunch!

We hope you all have a terrific Mid-Term break and look forward to seeing you all again on Monday 20th February

Morag, Davina, Mrs. Denholm and Laura
