Eco Schools Scotland – Green Flag Celebration Party

We had a lovely afternoon celebrating our Green Flag Award. Our Wellie Beans children collected special snack orders from each room. They then got the bus to Aldi to do a special party shop. Everyone enjoyed celebrating with a delicious Green Flag cake and lots of party games. What an achievement – well done boys and girls!


French Lessons

26th February 2018

Bonjour! We have loved having our weekly French lessons with Linda from La Jolie Ronde! Each week we have been learning French through fun songs, puppets, finger rhymes and games. We have also been imitating and repeating lots of oral activities with Linda. Have you heard us talking French yet?


We have had a very busy start to 2018

26th February 2018

We have had a very busy start to 2018. Many thanks to Lucas’s mummy for coming in to tell us all about Chinese New Year and how she celebrates it. We loved hearing all about her family traditions. Also to Pyjama Drama for coming in to do some very special sessions with us all about the Year of the Dog! We also loved listening to Scottish poems, dancing to Scottish pipe music, tasting haggis, neeps and tatties and designing our own tartans and coats of arms to celebrate Robbie Burns Day. We made THOUSANDS of pancakes and chose our own favourite toppings. We have also decided to make our own Talking and Thinking and Learning Trees – look out for these outside our rooms and in reception.
