The children had a great time at the party yesterday. Lots of games, competitions and party food! Not only that – we had a special visitor who we were all really pleased to see. Have a look!
Welcome back to everyone after the October break. I am very pleased to say that the total raised from our Sponsored Walk was the huge sum of £1075.25 ! A big thank you to everyone who took part in the walk and those who supported and sponsored the participants. Well done to all involved!
Just a quick reminder to everyone that we are having our Nursery Open Day tomorrow – Wednesday 4th October. This is an opportunity for you to drop in to Nursery between the hours of 9.30am – 11am to see what’s happening! You can have a look around and perhaps take part in an activity with your child. We are looking forward to seeing everyone who can manage to give us a visit. Watch this space for photographs of the event – you might see someone you know!
The Nursery Team
Welcome to the morning Nursery Blog! We have had such a busy term getting to know each other and taking part in lots of activities. A big thanks to everyone who managed to come along to the Open Morning – it was a lovely day. Here are some of the photographs we took on the day.
It was Nursery Graduation today and nearly 60 of the children took part in our graduation ceremony in the dining hall today in front of a full house of very proud mums, dads, grandparents, aunties and uncles!
Each of the children received a certificate , a ‘goodie bag’, and wore their own mortar board hats. Halfway through the ceremony the children performed some of their favourite songs.
Even the teachers got a special certificate from Mrs Ironside and Mrs Sunley.
Congratulations, Class of 2015!!
Dear Parents and Carers,
It is with a mixture of sadness and excitement that I would like to let you all know I will be relocating to Tanzania in August to teach at Braeburn International School in Arusha. I have been given a wonderful opportunity to go and teach on a continent that I love and, while I am sad to leave Riverbank, I am truly excited to be moving on to this new adventure.
I will be keeping in touch with Riverbank as much as possible to let everyone know how I am getting on, and to find out all the news from Aberdeen. I will also be back to visit during my Christmas break!
It’s hard to believe the year has flown by so quickly! I am so proud of each of the children of Riverbank Nursery and all the amazing progress they have made this year. They have exciting changes coming up, especially those moving on to Primary 1.
Thank you for all your support and contributions over this year. We have had a super busy, fun and productive school year and now it is time for a well-deserved holiday!
I hope you have a wonderful summer!
Thank you again,
The children delighted our ears with some lovely renditions of nursery rhymes with the help of Mrs Grant and her guitar. Have a watch and see our lovely children’s singing! XFactor, here we come!

The children and parents had a fantastic time today taking part in our Sports Day!
The children ran in their Rainbow Groups in relay races:
- The ‘Make a Face Race’ where they had to make a face using the sports equipment.
- The ‘Tattie and Spoon Race’
- And the soggy ‘Jack and Jill Bucket Race’
They then ran in individual flat races and even the parents got involved in the very competitive parents race!
Afterwards we all had a lovely picnic in the sunshine. Thank you to everyone for taking part and making it a great day!
What a fun, fruity day we had in Nursery!
We read and acted out the story of Handa’s Surprise before spending our snacktime making delicious smoothies!!
Have a look at the fun we had…
