We are looking forward to welcoming Christopher to our Pre-Nursery this week, i'm sure the children will be very kind and welcoming to help him settle in. We also have some children starting our afternoon sessions. This term we will begin to prepare for Primary 1 which is very exciting!
This week in Nursery we will go to 'Space Camp' where the children will take part in lots of physical training to prepare them for a visit to space! We will learn about keeping our bodies healthy both in our eating choices as well as in exercise. We will explore what food is healthy for our body and how it helps us grow up big and strong. We will learn to do different exercises that make our heart rate change and our breathing faster! This will be a great opportunity to make sure your snack at school contains some fruit or vegetables. The children will be awarded a special healthy food sticker for any children who bring (and eat/taste) some fruit or vegetables at school, so if you have a tricky eater at home this may help motivate them to try something new at school. 

We are going to learn a funny song "I like to eat eat eat apples and bananas". It changes the sounds of the words using the vowels a,e,i,o,u. We will then try some yummy apples and bananas of our own which we will learn to prepare into fruit kebabs. *if you click on the picture you can hear the song*
