KingsWellies £10 Snack Shopper – Would you like to do our snack shopping for us?

05th October 2020

Number, Money and Measure: “I am developing my awareness of how money is used and can recognise and use a range of coins” MNU 0-079 Our children are learning all of the time. Our main focus for learning is through developing our Literacy, Numeracy and Health and Wellbeing skills. As part of the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence, we also develop skills, knowledge and understanding in: Expressive Arts Social Studies Technologies Sciences Religious and Moral Education We would like our KingsWellies children to develop a good understanding of money. The best way to do this is through using REAL money. If you would like to be one of our “Snack Shoppers” over the weekend, please email Kerryn. Kerryn will give you our snack “Shopping List” and Scott will give you the £10 budget. It would be a huge help to us if you and your child could buy some of the items for our snack over the weekend. This will also be a hugely beneficial experience for your child. Why not make this their “weekend responsibility”? This will provide a vast range of learning opportunities right across the curriculum. Please just take back the shopping, change and receipt at the beginning of the week. Please also fill out our “Snack Shopper Diary” so that we can share your shopping experiences with our other children! Feel free to add any photos and also your feedback.

Staffing Update

05th October 2020

We are a number of staff OVER our ratio EVERY day. This is unlike most other nurseries. This ensures that we can easily accommodate lots of high quality staff training, holidays and any staff absences. We are also able to ensure that all of our Covid 19 policies and procedures are stringently followed on a daily basis. We would like to welcome Shannon Robertson, Rachel Wilson, and Lucy McQueen. We are delighted to welcome them all to the Wellies team. Good luck also to Campbell Oag who will be leaving us soon to start studying medicine at Oxford University. Campbell will continue to work with us during his holidays from Uni.

Graduation – Class of 2020

We had a great Saturday afternoon at our graduation party. It was so very lovely to welcome all of the boys and girls back to nursery for one last shin dig. Great fun was had by all. Parents and staff gave the boys and girls a very well-deserved standing ovation when they left the nursery for the last time. It really did bring a tear to our eyes. Congratulations everyone!
