Happy Christmas from Nursery

December has been a magical month in Nursery. The children learned about the first Christmas and how people celebrate Jesus’ birthday each year. They role played the Nativity in the home corner and made an Advent wreath to take home.

As always Nursery put on their amazing Nativity Play. This years performance was called ‘A Little Bird Told Me.’ Every child sang their hearts out and knew all of the actions! Miss O’Connor is incredibly proud!

Building Walls in Nursery

Nursery had a wonderful time this week building walls using wooden blocks and shaving foam. They donned safety hats and used trowels to add the ‘mortar’ to their bricks.   The children used spirit levels to check that their walls were straight and level.       We definitely have some prospective architects in Nursery!…Continue Reading
