Nursery Transition to P1

Hi, as some of you are aware the pre-school children will be moving up to P1! we will be starting a transition theme based around the book ‘The Smeds and the Smoos’. Please look out for your child talking about this book and encourage them to talk about what they are doing in nursery. If you have the book at home please look it out but please don’t buy one as we hope to gift each pre-school child with a copy. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you.

11/1/2021 Learning Grid

Here is the nursery week one home Learning grid. It is based on the story of Stickman by Julia Donaldson.
Please log into your child’s Online Learning Journals page to see this grid and more. You can also upload pictures of what you have been learning at home onto their page as well. The nursery team look forward to seeing what you have been getting up to!

Important info to be passed on:

Children registered with an Edinburgh GP practice

If your child is aged 2-5yrs (and not yet at school) and you have missed the appointment offered for flu vaccination for your child, there will be an opportunity for your child to attend a drop in clinic on the weekend of Saturday the 5th and Sunday the 6th of December at the Royal Hospital for Children and Young people, 50 Little France Crescent, Edinburgh, EH16 4TJ

This will be a drop-in clinic between the hours of 9am and 4pm. Please note you may experience a wait.

Please note that if you have received an appointment for a flu vaccination for a date between now or after 6th December you should attend that appointment – the drop in clinic is only for those who have missed their appointment already.  

The flu vaccine offered will be the nasal spray – if your child requires flu vaccine by injection for medical or religious reasons please approach your GP practice for this.

Protecting your child from Flu is important.
