Last week we had a lovely Christmas lunch. We would like to say a big THANK YOU to the wonderful canteen staff for such a lovely lunch.

It was delicious!

Choir

The school choir had an exciting time last week being recorded for MFR. We are expecting the choir to be played on MFR between 8 and 9 tomorrow – possibly 8.30am.

We have been very busy this week. Here are some samples of our Santa letters. We had great fun on Friday morning getting prepared for our Christmas Party on Monday. We practised the Grand Old Duke of York, Christmas Corners, Pass the Parcel and Musical Statues. We are really looking forward to our party on Monday from 1-2.30pm.

Music Matters

 As you know we have been very lucky to have Artsplay Highland visit the nursery during this term to deliver music and movement sessions to our pre-school children through their Music Matters programme.

The children have been thoroughly enjoying these music sessions and have been learning to recognise rhythm through various activities in time to music.  One of Artsplay’s guest artists, Cheryl Heggie tells us…

“I am delighted to have worked with Artsplay bringing music and movement to 16 nurseries across the Highland region.  The children engaged and joined in well, clapping and jumping in time to the music.  We skipped, marched and shook our shakers to the beat and even did a spot of fishing with our ribbons.  We flew in plane and chugged in a train to some fun parachute games and songs.

Music matters will continue next term and Artsplay Highland are planning to arrange a Burns Day ceilidh in the nursery, we are hoping that some parents, families and friends of the nursery children may join us.  We shall provide you with further details in due course.
