NEW SCHOOL YEAR 2012/2013

Hard to believe our new classes all begin or return to nursery school on Thursday 30th August!!
It will be such a busy day. 

We have a wee task for all parents and children to do to familiarise you with the layout of the nursery.  The main focus will be finding out where your child's art area, pigeon hole and coatpeg are... then doing some activities with your child.

Looking forward to meeting new and returning families!!

Summer School July 2012

Monday 30th July 2012 was the first day of this year's  fun and our theme was obvious - The Olympics and London 2012!!  There was a lot to think about and to create never mind the athletic and sporting side of things....
Making medals for the winners - 

...and Grace on hand with some help if required
We printed the Olympic rings using paper and circles inside


-  outside we created the Olympic Rings using tyres setting them up to recreate the shape and painting them with acrylic paint














We talked about how people travelled to London from all over the world.  We drew maps, used Duplo aeroplanes and bricks with paper and crayons to draw maps.


 Our loft became an aeroplane.

There were tickets made, a notice reminding everyone to fasten their seatbelt and  - Take off!

Little Tiger Cubs - classes for 3 - 5 year olds

Wednesday 13th June 2012

Today all our children had a taster session of Taekwon-do Learning through play.

The session was led by Leo and Carrie and was interactive throughout.
Activities were presented as fun but the children were learning through their activities:
  • how to develop balance, co-ordination
  • listening and following instructions
  • counting
  • colour matching and naming
  • fine motor skills as they balanced the 'teacups' on the 'saucers'
  • taking turns and respecting others as they work together



Stand on a coloured spot, fists ready - Let's go!


And the Green team's turn




The Blue team play cups and saucers











This is Leo....

The weekly lessons are being offered in Coleraine West Community Centre each Monday.
