Operating as usual

25/06/2023

As we say a goodbye to our home of many years, Maxholme would like to say a thank you to the staff, parents and volunteers that made this move possible. A special recognition goes to our volunteer parent committee who have worked hard to make Brookwood our home for the foreseeable future. Every committee member this past year has played an integral part in the planning of the move, fundraising to support our nursery and helping the staff on a day to day basis.

Our thanks go to the co-chairs Holly and Victoria, committee members Douglas, Julie, Christine, Sarah, Jennifer, Frances, Niamh, and Gemma.

And, thank you to our wonderful staff who always create such a warm and nurturing environment for our Maxholme children - Rowan, Sam, Carol, Suzanne, Saima, Val, Shivani and Elaine.

We shall see you all in August at the very exciting opening of Maxholme’s new home!

A little bit of history for you all this morning…….

Does anyone remember the lovely entrance that used to be at the Bearsden Library? When the construction company started working on Brookwood Villa they found it all broken down in hundreds of pieces in one of the rooms. They decided to piece it all back together and it is now a beautiful feature in our new nursery garden 😍

We are also very lucky to have a beautiful stained glass window in our stairway which has been professionally restored and cleaned to its former glory! ❤️

Hooray!!!

Today the children enjoyed a special Teddy Bears Picnic lunch in the gardens of the Bearsden Baptist Church. It was a lovely treat and some of their parents & grandparents were also able to join us as part of our celebrations for the end of term.
We enjoyed teddy bear games in the gardens too and went on a bear hunt with a special treat at the end.
There was also a teddy bear theme inside nursery, the children enjoyed teddy bear stories, puzzles and jigsaws, they painted portraits of their own teddy bears, we pinned the love hearts on the teddy bear, made teddy bears with playdoh and sang lots of bear songs at circle time.
They even enjoyed teddy shaped bread and honey for snack with chopped apples.
Many thanks to Bearsden Baptist Church for allowing us to use their beautiful gardens everyone had a wonderful time. 🐻❤️

On Friday morning we held our 2023 Nursery Sports day at the Bearsden Baptist Church gardens. The sun was shining, lots of mums, dads and grandparents came to watch and enjoy some tea/coffee and home baking whilst watching the races.

The children had a fantastic time taking part in a running race, egg and spoon race, sack race and balancing a bean bag on their head. We even had a race for the mums and dads.

Thank you everyone for coming along we hope you all enjoyed the morning and a big thank you to the committee for helping us to organise the event.
☀️🏅🏃‍♂️☕️🧁

It’s World Bee Day tomorrow and the children have been busy learning all about bees this week. What an essential part they play with other pollinators in keeping people and the planet healthy.

They have made bee hive pictures using printing with paint, they have made their own bumble bees and enjoyed planting some lavender and pretty flowers in our plant pots to help the bees with the pollen collecting. 🐝🖤💛

This morning the children enjoyed using our new litter pickers to do some cleaning up along Jubilee Path and along the pathway next to the railway tracks near our nursery.
It was a lovely sunny morning and they loved using their new litter pickers collecting the rubbish and filling up the bags. We talked about where litter belongs and they filled up 3 bags of rubbish well done boys and girls 👍

Last week we went on two walks we visited the gardens at the Bearsden Baptist Church the children enjoyed exploring, digging in the leaves and dirt looking for bugs, chalk drawing, swinging in the trees, making imaginary camp fires and playing Roman soldiers.
We also visited the Roman Baths the children loved exploring the different areas, talking to their key workers about what they used to be, pretending to be Roman soldiers in the baths, counting and collecting the stones and of course there was a particular interest in the Latrine (toilets) 😉😂

The children have LOVED the sunshine this week in the garden 😍☀️ We have spent as much time outdoors as we possibly can with plenty to keep us busy such as the mud kitchens, the water trough, building bug houses, painting rocks to make Ladybugs 🐞, making butterflies and the hammock has been a very popular spot to relax and swing in the spring breeze.

On Saturday Mrs Arthur and Mrs Zafar attended a training course ‘Essential Bushcraft Skills for Outdoor Learning Practitioners’ at The Children’s Wood in Glasgow. They learnt various new outdoor learning activities, how to use a Kelly Kettle, essential knots and ropes for shelter and den building and how to use a hammock safely with children.

One of the main events of the day was camp fires and using fire pits. They were shown how to set up a fire, fire lighting, fire triangle, safe stance, how to safely extinguish a fire and how to cook snacks on a fire with children.

Outdoor learning and play is widely encouraged in all settings both at Nursery and School level and it is a key part of our nursery day and curriculum. Mrs Arthur and Mrs Zafar are very excited to utilise their new skills in our wonderful garden.

On Tuesday this week we had a lovely lady Claire Gomez visit us from ‘Kidslingo’ to deliver a Spanish Taster class. All the children really enjoyed it they were fully engaged for the 30 minute session. Claire used a hand puppet Pablo, rubber ducks, sequin fabric along with lots of singing and dancing to music. The children learnt counting 1-5, greeting their friends with Hello, Goodbye and thank you and the nursery rhyme ‘Five little ducks’

We are planning to have Claire come to nursery on a weekly basis in August for a Spanish Class. She also runs local classes for school aged children.
