Nursery Children having autumnal fun!

Over the last few weeks the nursery children have been exploring autumn and all the learning opportunities this exciting season provides. We have talked about the weather, the changing colour of the leaves, we have enjoyed the Halloween festival, made jam from our own raspberries, Made leaf angels and many more things. Here is a selection of photos of our learning as a photo can say a thousand words!

Nursery have a Super Soup cook off and fire!

Today the nursery children had a log fire that they lit themselves! We built a fire with our friends at Pirniehall and watched as the flames took hold. Whilst the fire was warming up we harvested some of the potatoes with Miss Gonzalez that we grew last year. Whilst some children were harvesting potatoes and washing them the rest peeled vegetables and chopped them up. Next we boiled some water and added our stock and chopped vegetables. We watched as they cooked- checking regularly. When the veg was cooked and soft we took it off the fire and mashed it all up. Once it was quality checked and cool we all got a chance to taste it outside and share it with our friends in Pirniehall. Later Mrs Rafferty offered it to all the children for snack. Our soup cook off was all part of us joining in with the RHS Big Soup Share Please join in at home too by following the links. Have a souper day 😊.

Ready, set, soup!

Pupils harvest their crops of vegetables to make soup for the Royal Horticultural Society’s (RHS) Big Soup Share at Charlton Manor Primary School, London Friday October 4, 2019. Three thousand schools, community and youth groups have signed up to use their own grown garden produce to make and share soup over the week (7-13 October) with an estimated 60,000 litres expected to be served. .Photo RHS / Luke MacGregor

The Big soup share is now in full swing! But it’s not too late to get involved.
This year we’ve gone digital! We’ve got a wheelbarrow load of resources and videos to help you host a event online and have a great Soup Share week.
This is the perfect time to connect with people in your community virtually, and as the colder weather sets in, what better time to enjoy a successful harvest with a hot bowl of soup?
Check out the green box to download our guidance, printable resources and recipes to get rolling. 
And for those who are able to carry out a more in-person Big Soup Share, either in a small group or by offering a takeaway/delivery service, we’ve got some guidance for you too!
If you’re taking part, be sure to sign up below as you’ll also receive some soup-er freebies after the Big Soup Share to help you get growing for next year!
Working with more than one group? You only need to fill in the sign up form once. Then just drop as an email to schoolgardening@rhs.org.uk and we’ll make sure all of your groups get a goodie bag!

P5 – Meet The Teacher & Term 1 Learning Leaflet

Dear Primary 5 parents,

Currently we are unable to invite you in to see the classrooms and to have a chat so we have made a short video and some slides with key information that we would have normally shared with you in person.

I’m so happy that all of the children have settled back into school life, please see the attached learning leaflet for what we have planned to learn in Term 1. I hope this gives you an insight into how this year will be.

If you have any questions please get in touch.

Mrs Sharkey
