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’.
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.
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.
Irish Dancing continues tomorrow Friday 20th April, I look forward to starting our new term of dancing with the children. This term we will be learning new dances, this will range from a mixture of both solo and team dancing. The following classes will be learning:
P.1 – P.3: ‘The Light Jig’
P.4 – P.7: ‘The high Cauled Cap’
Can I remind parents to please ensure their child or children has a bottle of water with them.
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.
Today we had another surprise whereby Fred the magician came and did a spectacular show for the Nursery children. The children where mesmerised.
We hope you have an enjoyable and relaxing Easter Break!
The children from the Irish Dancing club had great fun last week celebrating World Book Day and St Patrick’s day by wearing green and dressing up as their favourite character. Below are some pictures of the children looking great and full of smiles.
Just a reminder about tomorrows dancing class, Friday 23rd of March that parents are more than welcome to come to the last 15 minutes of the session, as I would like to display to you how hard the children have worked since the club began. This will end the Irish Dancing club for this term as next Friday 30th March, the school will be off on Easter break. Dancing will recommence after Mid Term on Friday 13th April. Times are as follows for tomorrow:
P.1 – P.3 – 2:45PM
P.4 – P.7 – 3:45PM
Also can I remind parents to pack a drink for their child or children as it is thirsty work!
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!
