Nursery

Welcome to Nursery  

 

We are so happy that you have chosen our Nursery School for your child to start their education, please keep an eye on this page to be updated with the latest news and pictures of what the class have been busy learning about. 

 

Some key information:

  • School fund is £3 a week and is paid every Monday, this covers the cost of snack, items for cooking, making play dough, school trips & new learning resources.
  • Dinners cost £2.50 per day or £12.50 per week.
  • Artwork gets sent home every Friday in purple art bags which are returned on a Monday morning.
  • We are so lucky to have a garden, we ask that all children have welly boots as the grass can be wet and mucky.
  • Please also ensure your child has a spare change of clothes, learning in Nursery can get very messy.

 

The class have already been very busy, we are starting to introduce the topic 'Amazing Me', they have been talking about important people in their lives and are starting to make new friends as they're learning through play. They have been learning new routines such as snack and are developing independence in getting their own snack and putting it away.

October Newsletter 2022

We enjoyed eating croissants to celebrate European Day of Languages 🥐

A librarian from Ormeau Library came into our class to read us a story. We listened really well and enjoyed hearing lots of fun stories and loved getting stickers and a craft. Reading helps us to develop our concentration and language skills.

Spooky season has started, we have enjoyed dressing up for our PTA event and have taken part in lots of activities to do with Halloween and Autumn. We have made our own fire work pictures by blowing through straws to make our paint splat, we have looked at leaves falling outside and made our own, we even cut pumpkins open and explored what was inside! We are learning to ask questions to extend our learning.

We were visit by Belfast City Council who brought along Mr Rat and took us on his trail teaching us all about recycling and the importance of taking old materials and making them into new ones. 

Hot Chocolate Cafe 

 

We learn outdoors every day, we have loved the new hot chocolate cafe. Children have taken on different roles of being the cafe owner, baker and customers! They have loved using natural resources, cupcakes and other treats to support their play.

Christmas Season has arrived in nursery! We had a special visit from Ellie the Litter Elf who taught us about the importance of not littering. We listened very well to the story she had to tell us. We have also enjoyed our new toy work shop where we have been writing and decorating cards, decorating wrapping paper and wrapping presents.

Elsa froze our classroom! We were very surprised to see the elf, penguins and seals frozen in the water tray. The class enjoyed using hammers to free the animals and the elf, they worked independently and together to finally free her! We had lots of fun exploring the snowy play areas, mark making numbers in the glittery snow, developing language in the small world and creating a cosy den in the construction area.
