Well done to the Bluebell children who received this weeks SHANARRI certificates for achieving, respecting, responsible and healthy. Well done everyone!
Please see below the latest Nursery newsletter from Mrs Rushforth.
We have been discussing the understanding of Getting It Right For Every Child (GIRFEC) which uses eight indicators for wellbeing; safe, healthy, achieving, nurtured, active, respected, responsible and included (SHANARRI).
We hope to build on this concept with the children by using this language in our everyday conversations with them and by giving them certificates when they have shown positive interactions.
This will support children to become more familiar with these concepts, and to develop their understanding of the many ways we can promote wellbeing that allows us to flourish and gain confidence.

Mrs Martin came to do some autumn art work with us. We worked together to paint the background using autumnal colours. Then we used paper, paints and crayons to create a tree and leaves, We painted some hedgehogs and squirrels to live in our Autumn picture.
The Nursery have been exploring different Fairytales and traditional stories. We turned our pod into the house from Hansel and Gretel, used different materials to build a new house for the Three Little Pigs and used puppets and character mats to retell different stories.
Some of the children in the nursery wanted to know what would happen when you mix different colours together. We tested mixing each colour and decided to record the results on a chart. We decided making brown was the hardest!
We have been discussing our nursery charter. As a group we decided what our responsibilities should be and made a hand print to decorate each flower.

We hope you have lots of fun!
