The boys and girls have settled back into nursery so well and they are learning lots of new things. Our topic this term is Helping Hands and we are learning about all the different people who help us. Have a look at what we have been getting up to.

Always remember boys and girls to use One Kind Word and that will make you a fantastic friend. ⭐️⭐️

Today we all wore our odd socks to represent that fact that everyone is different.  Even though we are all different we are still very special and unique. 

Share a smile and kindness ❤️

This week the boys and girls have had lots of fun playing with the Halloween related resources.  They have been drawing Halloween pictures, carving and decorating a pumpkin, making potions in the water tray and dressing up in the home corner. 

We have been busy little bees, learning lots of new skills.

Today we came to Nursery dressed up in our Halloween costumes.  Some children were scary and Mrs Preston couldn’t figure out who was hiding behind the masks.

The children had some treats to finish off the day before their half term holidays. 

Happy Halloween boys & girls and see you in November. 🎃🕸🕷🧙🏻‍♀️🧛🏻

The nursery children have all settled in very well.  We have 26 children and each of them have individually adapted to life in their new classroom.  Here are a few photos to show you a snippet of what they have been getting up to over the past few weeks.

A few years ago we applied for funding from The Donnelly Group Foundation to enhance our equipment for outdoors.  We were nominated to receive the funding at that time but due to Covid19 we were unable to use the funding until this year.  

We decided to buy a permanent climbing wall and tunnel that will be available for the children to use every day.  This was purchased from Creative Activity in Londonderry and we used the funding to pay for this alongside some nursery funds. 

We are absolutely delighted with the product and we know it will enhance the children's physical development and also increase their confidence in climbing on aparatus. 

A big thank you to The Donnelly Group Foundation for their funding and also to Gavin at Creative Activity for helping us with our order. 


We will enjoy lots of climbing and crawling through the tunnel.

Today we were very excited as we got new road markings and car parking spaces in our playground.  Yesterday Jason from Allplay came and did a fantastic job of laying our new playground markings.  This will help us remember where to ride our bikes and trikes and teach us how to cross the road safely at the zebra crossing. 

Thank you Jason for a super job!! The funding for this has come from the build up on nursery funds that our parents contribute to each month, so thank you to you also. 

I'm sure the kids will have lots of fun with this over the year!

On Friday our nursery children had their graduation. They were amazing and what a special way to celebrate the wonderful achievements they have had this year. 
We are all very proud of them and wish them the very best as they begin the next chapter of P1 in September. Well done boys and girls!
