Nursery

Welcome to Nursery!

 

We are delighted to have your child in our Nursery class. 

Our staff are dedicated to providing your child with an exciting introduction to their educational career as they take full advantage of the experiences offered to them through their pre-school education. 

We have a fun filled and exciting year ahead of us, packed full of activites, visitors and trips.  

Keep checking our page for updates and photographs.

PTA Halloween Disco

 

How fabulous do we look in our Fancy dress costumes?

 

We had a fun filled day with spooky activities before showing off our groovy moves at the disco!

 

Have a wonderful half term everyone! 

Stay safe.

Ormeau Road Library Visit

 

Allison from the library visited our class.

She read some Autumn and spooky Halloween stories.  

We even sang some songs too!

 

Making Rice Crispie Buns

 

We really enjoyed making rice crispie buns in Nursery.  

We identified our ingredients, discussed our method and predicted what would happen to the chocolate when it place place in the microwave.

 

 

Outdoor Play

 

The children are extremely excited to be outside exploring our outdoor learning environment.

Please remember your coat as we will be outdoors as much as possible!

European Day of Languages

 

The children dressed up in colours of European flags to celebrate all the different languages at our school.  

We had a special continental breakfast of croissants, pain au chocolat and orange juice.

 

 

Making Playdough

 

 The children follow a visual recipe help to make the playdough each week.  

As we measure, mix and kneed the ingredients we are exploring mathematical and scientific concepts.  

We are also getting creative with colour mixing and reaffirming our colour recognition. 

 

Healthy Snack

 

Everyday in nursery we eat a healthy snack.

 We have fruit, milk and a selection of breads or yoghurts.

Snack time enables us to make choices and socialise with our peers while gaining independence.

 

A Sneaky Peak!

 

The children have been busy settling into Nursery life, meeting new friends, playing with new toys, working with the staff and learning lots of new routines. 

Here is a sneaky peak at what we have been up to!

Please do not think that we simply 'play'.

 

Play is the vehicle on which we learn. 

It takes us on an ongoing journey, allowing us to stop off, revisit and move on towards new goals.

Through play we develop physically, socially and academically.

Play enables us to explore, problem solve, predict and test theories.

Play provides us with natural opportunities to explore our world around us, discover our talents, to refine our gross and fine motor skills and to develop our early literacy and numeracy skills.

Through play we learn to negotiate and to work in groups, developing our communication and leadership skills.

We grow in confidence, independence and self esteem, all while developing a thirst for learning!
