May time fun 

Our Trip to Streamvale Farm

on Thursday 5th May, we went to Streamvale farm and had a wonderful and fun learning experience, learning about the animals, their young and the workings of the farm. 

April fun! 
It has been a very busy week in school since returning from our Easter break. The children have all settled back into school life extremely well and demonstrate an eagerness to learn. We have continued to benefit greatly from learning outdoors and the children are beginning to feel more confident to accept challenges to develop their own physical capabilities. There has also been lots of interest around the topic of the ‘farm’ ahead of our very exciting trip to Streamvale farm next week. Well done boys and girls on another fantastic week of learning and fun at nursery school!

Eco Schools-Term 2

We have been very busy during term 2, working on our Eco Schools action plan and developing the children’s knowledge of environmental issues and teaching them how they can help to create a greener society. Please have a look at our Eco Schools news to see what we have achieved and to find out what we will be getting up to over the next term.

Happy Easter Everyone! 

Outdoor learning fun in the sun ☀️ 
Over the past few weeks, we have had lots of fun learning outdoors in the sun, especially with all of our new outdoor equipment!

Gardening week!

Pancake Tuesday, World Book Day and lots more learning and fun!

7th-11th February 2022

This week we have had many patients attend ‘Banbridge Nursery School’s hospital’; we had lots of ‘muddy’ fun outside and we even celebrated Valentine’s Day! We hope you all have a lovely half term break and we look forward to seeing that children again on Monday 21st February 2022.

Posting our friendship cards 

 Today, we went on our first ‘walking trip’ to post our friendship cards in the postbox. We worked really hard to decorate and write our cards to send in time for Valentine’s Day. The boys and girls also learnt about the journey of a letter and the different processes a letter goes through before it is delivered to our houses. Keep an eye out on your friendship card being delivered over the weekend and hopefully it arrives before or on Monday 14th February. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

February Fun!

Week 13

What another busy week in nursery school!
This week we have been busy learning about the dark skies, space and those animals who are nocturnal and come out when it’s dark. We took part in a woodland animal hunt on Thursday around the school grounds and even made some delicious vegetable soup to take with us. On Friday, we all came to school in our pyjamas and brought our favourite teddy bear’s to fundraise for Children In Need!
