Nursery - Ireland

Welcome to Nursery

We would like to welcome all the new children and families that are starting with us this term. We look forward to getting to know you and your family. 


We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New year and shared lots of exciting adventures together. This term we will be learning about 'Terrific Transport'. We will be learning  about a range of vehicles such as, rockets, trains, ambulances, fire engines and police cards. We will also be learning about space, firefighters, nurses/doctors, police officer and fire fighters. We will be having lots of visitors in throughout our topic. We will also be visiting the local shop to buy ingredients for our cooking. You can find more information about what we are learning about in our Knowledge Organiser.


This term we will be beginning to learn numbers and shapes. Please support your child/ren to start recognising these in their local environment such as, numbers on doors and buses, shapes on houses and in pictures etc. 


Please ensure your child/ren bring their PE bag, water bottle, book bag and coat on the first day back. 


Water bottles need to be brought in every Monday. We rinse and refill water bottles each day and then send them home on a Friday. 


Thank you, 

Mrs Fabian and the Nursery Team
