Wednesday Challenge


Our challenge today comes from Mrs Peoples. She needs us to help with some work for the new P1 pupils .


The nursery children have been encouraged to take part in the Edinburgh Bear Hunt as part of their transition work. One of the activities they are to complete is the Cosmic Kids yoga linked to the story – It would be great if the older boys and girls could join in too, you can find it here – Remember to share pictures with us!

Health Week Ideas

Amelie and her mum have  kindly shared some of the things she has been doing to keep busy.

Scottish opera have an online production called Fever! Kids join in and learn the parts, make props etc. It has activities an info about viruses and the immune system too. It is for ages 8-12


Amelie likes Cosmic Kids yoga on you tube. It has stories to link the yoga poses so suitable for younger/all ages


We have been doing an acro balance class. (We will try to get a photo but it is hard to take pictures with Amelie balanced on me!) There is a book called Jack’s acrobatics by Rika Taeymans that has moves for a child and grown-up to do together.


Cook Stars franchise have free cookalong videos on Facebook just now. I think they put new ones up twice a week (some are healthier than others!)


Welcome back to WOW WEDNESDAY! We hope you are all having a lovely week and are enjoying our health week activities in the sunshine!

We have received lots of pictures of the wonderful work you have been getting up to this week and we want to say a special well done to you all! To start us off this week a big well done to Clara, Edith and Johnpaul who sent us their pictures and art work – we are very impressed!

We also found some examples of brilliant spider work from last week’s daily challenges, well done to Ava, Mason and Casper for sharing these with us!

Some children have also been busy bear hunting too – if you haven’t had a chance to walk past school why not go for a look and see if you can spot our Royal Mile Bear? Clara and her big brother Theo found him! Mason also had fun trying to find things that he could go over, under and through, just like in the story, well done Mason! Remember to send us pictures of you with your bears and to display your bear if you can so that your friends can spot them!

Finally we’d like to share a special well done with the children who we have spotted being Super-Siblings! Theo and Bertie have been helping their little sister and brother and Johnpaul has been playing so nicely with his little sister too! Well done boys – I’ve asked Mrs Aylward to give the P2 boys an extra house point! 🙂

Enjoy the rest of health week and don’t forget to keep sending us pictures for us to share next week! You can email them to us at, tweet us @RMPSnursery or upload them to the gallery on your child’s learning journal.
