Our fun and energetic classes are a fast-paced introduction to Rugby where the child will learn about shapes, colours, numbers and counting, they will be encouraged to work independently as well as enjoying team games. Finding space, looking after the ball, scoring tries, running with the ball in two hands and general agility and balance are just some of the things the children will learn during their time with us.  All the equipment used in these classes has been specifically designed and selected for young children. We use sponge foam balls so the children can catch, pass and kick their goals with confidence. Its colourful, it's lively and it's guaranteed to brighten up anyone’s day.

We understand that the extended stories to accompany the ORT books can often go missing. The questions below are generic higher order thinking questions to ensure engagement with the text. These are not specific and could be applied to all ORT books.
When and where did the story take place?   Who are the main characters?   What does the main character look like?   How does the book begin?   Where in the book would you find...?   Can you think of another story character similar to a character in this book?   Have you had any similar experiences?   Which text/story is better? Why?   Which parts of the text could be improved?   Did you like the ending – why/why not?   Who would you recommend this to?  
What is the book about?   Which part did you like/dislike – why?   Can you explain why...?   If you were the main character, how would you have reacted to this?   What would this character think?   Are there any other reasons why *** might have happened?

Dear Parents/ Carers Clothing As part of the nursery day we have to offer the children a full range of experiences, inside and out. The children will therefore be able to access the garden in all weathers. Please can you ensure your child has a change of clothes with them every day, a waterproof jacket and wellies as you never know what the Scottish weather will bring! We do have a small stock of waterproof trousers and a couple of pairs of wellies, but if you could provide your child with their own, that would be great. Also, if you have any old wellies or waterproof trousers you no longer use and would like to donate them to the nursery this would be very much appreciated. We would also welcome socks, trousers, pants and shoes as our stock is running low. If your child has borrowed clothes please return them as soon as you can. Buggies Please could I ask that you leave buggies in the nursery garden when coming in to collect your child. It has become increasingly congested and difficult for parents/ carers to get their child organised to leave nursery. Security   When arriving or leaving the nursery (out with drop off or collection times) could you please make sure the door is properly shut and secure as well as the nursery gate. Collecting Children When collecting your child, please could you go over to the coloured area rather than allowing them to run over to you in the cloakroom. This is to ensure that all children are collected by the correct person. Once you have collected your child, please ensure they post their name in the grey basket on your way out.
