Grow Your Own Picnic


The Nursery were busy bees yesterday at Finnegans Nursery. We had a delightful day filled with fun and happiness outside in the garden. Previously, the children have been planting and growing different vegetables and fruit, and yesterday they finally got to enjoy and eat them with their picnic. We went on a magical walk through the garden and looked at all the different plants and trees. Then we used our mathematical skills and measured each other to see who was the tallest! A truly enjoyable morning!

I hope you enjoy the photos and we would like to thank you for supporting the scheme ‘Grow Your Own Picnic’.

Dear Parents,

Due to a busy few weeks ahead before we finish for summer, Irish Dancing club is finished for this year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, the parents, for your continued support since January.

Fun in the Sun!

Dear Parents,

We have had a busy but exciting couple of days in Nursery this week. We hope you are enjoying the good weather as much as we are. Today the children in Nursery got to experience eating their lunch in the main school in preparation for transitioning to P.1 in September.  The children have been learning all about our country of the week ‘Italy’, so today they got to make their own pizzas, Yum!



The children are enjoying playing outside in this glorious weather, so please can you ensure that your child comes to school with sun cream applied on them and a hat to protect them from the sun.

Thank you,

Miss White

The Nursery team would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy Easter!

We have had a busy few days at Nursery! Yesterday we had the pleasure of P.7 helping us. The children did a clean up outside in the Nursery playground and enjoyed listening to stories being read to them by the P.7’s.


After that we had a special guest the Easter Bunny, and the children received lots of yummy eggs.

The RSPB Big Schools Birdwatch

On Thursday, Primary 3 and Primary 3/4 took part in the RSPB Big Schools Birdwatch. The children reused old yoghurt pots to make bird feeders to encourage birds to visit our school and were delighted to see birds feeding from them. Both classes showed fantastic enthusiasm for learning about birds in our local area! The most common birds they identified were crows, blackbirds, wagtails and robins. Well done Primary 3 and Primary 3/4!
